Bobi Wine brother’s home raided by ‘drone’ gunmen; Nyanzi escapes, adopted son ‘abducted’

National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine says armed men in plain clothes raided his elder brother Fred Nyanzi’s home March 21 morning.

Bobi Wine suspects the ‘heavily’ armed men could have spent the night besieging Nyanzi’s home.

Some would pretend to be seeking employment from the former Kampala Central MP aspirant as soon as they saw his gate flung open, added Bobi Wine.

“The men who were travelling in a ‘drone’ seemed to have spent the night outside his home,” narrated Bobi Wine.

“When he opened his gate in the morning, three men immediately entered his compound and pretended to be casual laborers looking for work.”

But Nyanzi would later escape after he realized the men had firearms, according to Bobi Wine.

Indeed, more men reportedly entered and quizzed Nyanzi’s wife and other family members about the politician’s whereabouts.

“Nyanzi sensing danger after seeing pistols wrapped around their waists found a way of escaping from them,” continued Bobi Wine.

“More men who totalled to about eight entered with big guns and started asking for his whereabouts. They put everyone in the house under gunpoint and forced all family members including his wife to lie on the ground facing down as they asked for Mr. Nyanzi’s whereabouts.”

According to Bobi Wine, the men took Nyanzi’s adopted son called Happy Mugisha.

Security agencies were yet to speak out on the incident but drone arrests have dominated press reports in recent months.

Bobi Wine’s NUP supporters have formed the highest number of victims of drone arrests.
