Army, police sustain heavy gunfire in Arua town


Heavy gunshots were heard through the whole last night heard in Arua town as police and army battled a crowd of Christians trying to evict Arua Diocese Bishop Sabino Odoki.

The heavy gunshots were heard mostly at Ediofe, the seat of the diocese, about 3 kilometres west of Arua town.

According to Jonathan Musinguzi, the District Police Commander security forces overnight evicted some people who had, since the burial three weeks ago of the diocese’s Emeritus Bishop Frederick Drandua, camped at the graveside inside Ediofe cathedral.

They claimed to be mourning and protecting the burial site amid reports that some unnamed people planned to tamper with it.
