The recently abducted National Unity Platform party coordinator Umar Magara has been charged at the court martial and instantly remanded to Luzira prison till June 6th.
He has been charged with possession of Military stores at Nabweru Court according to sources knowledgeable with the trial.
His trial comes a day after a search was conducted at his home and IEDs placed inside his house to incriminate him.
Bobi in a Thursday tweet said his supporter’s home was raided by armed security personnel who then planted bombs at his home to corroborate with their intentions to link him to treason and subversion.
“According to the information we have, once the armed men reached Umar’s home, two of them with faces entirely hooded entered the house as the rest remained outside. They then ordered Umar’s family members including his wife, children and brother whom they found inside the house to remain still. The two hooded men then went into his children’s bedroom and placed there some items in two red shirts. Afterwards, the hooded men moved out of the house and now called the area’s head of Defence and police officers to enter and conduct a search. They then drew up a Search Certificate indicating that they had purportedly ‘recovered’ two red shirts and “two black bottles…containing nails and gasoline” from Umar’s house, and then forced him and his wife to sign it infront of the terrified family. The intention is clear; like they have done with many NUP leaders, they will probably claim that Umar was involved in terrorist activity and make him yet another statistic in their long list of trumped-up cases targeting NUP supporters. But in the end, there will be accountability for all this abuse,” Bobi tweeted Thursday.
