Mbarara District Police Commander Jaffar Magyezi has been arrested and taken to Mbuya Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) headquarters for questioning.
The 2nd Division Army barracks spokesperson Lt. Geoffrey Sande confirmed that he was summoned to appear at CMI headquarters in Mbuya today for questioning on yet to be known allegations.
In a phone interview, Lt Sande said that he is not aware why Magyezi was summoned and they expect him to report back after he is done with those who summoned him.
It is alleged that he is summoned in relation to his former boss Kale Kayihura as he is expected that he was one of his associates.
Since former Inspector General of Police Gen Kayihura was arrested on June 13, a joint team of CMI and ISO operatives have moved in to arrest dozens of his former associates or confidantes on various alleged crimes.
The arrested include; Lt Col Peter Musherure, former deputy Director of Crime Intelligence in police, Herbert Muhangi, former Flying Squad commander Richard Ndaboine, former Director of Crime Intelligence in police Col Ndahura Atwooki and several other high ranking police officers.
The arrested officers are facing charges, which the State has not yet specified.
