Plain -clothed men suspected to be security operatives have this afternoon re-arrested Lwemiyaga County Member of Parliament, Theodore Ssekikubo for unclear reasons and whisked off to an unknown destination.
According to his lawyer Lubega Medard Ssegona the legislator was picked up from his home and driven to an unknown destination.
The officers reportedly pulled the legislator out of his home and bundled him into a saloon with a private number before speeding off.
Paul Kangave, the Greater Masaka Regional Police Spokesperson has confirmed the MPs arrest but has declined to divulge any other details. He, however, says Ssekikubo’s file has been authorized to appear in court.
On Tuesday this week, Masaka Chief Magistrates Court presided over by Deogratius Ssejjemba granted the legislator bail after the State failed to adduce court records regarding his alleged skipping of bail in 2010.
On Monday, six counts of unlawful possession of firearms, engaging in acts calculated to cause death and inciting violence and causing physical injuries to voters.
The offences were reportedly committed during the ruling NRM party primaries in 2010 when Ssekikubo was contesting.
Police also arrested and detained Sekikubo on January 10th for inciting cattle farmers who were protesting against a cattle quarantine shortly after an outbreak of foot and mouth disease.
However, Ssekikubo faulted Security minister Elly Tumwine for trying to take charge of the cattle markets, he noted that saying there was no outbreak of the disease in the area as claimed the area.
