The statement comes a day after Aines lawyer Severino Twinobusingye filed a suit against Police over the illegal detention of his client at an unknown destination since December 2015. Aines family is also demanding for the release of their relative.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kale Kayihura tasks the Go-Forward team to produce Christopher Aine, an aide to Independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi for trial.

Kayihura accuses the group of hiding Aine, who is wanted for participating in clashes between National Resistance Movement and Go-Forward supporters in Ntungamo district last month.

The statement comes a day after Aine's lawyer Severino Twinobusingye filed a suit against Police over the illegal detention of his client at an unknown destination since December 2015. Aine's family is also demanding for the release of their relative.

Police last week placed a 20 million Shillings bounty for information leading to the arrest of Aine, accusing him of assaulting police officers in Jinja and beating NRM supporters in Ntungamo last year. More than fifteen Mbabazi supporters have since been arrested and taken to court over the violence.

The Police chief says a warrant of arrest will be sent out on Wednesday for Aine.
