James Asubu, the Officer in Charge of Crimes at Gulu Central Police Station declined to comment on the arrest of the artists and instead referred our reporter to the police spokesperson.
 

Martin Okoyo, the Gulu District Police Commander, told URN that they will present more details on the arrest of the artists in due course. The arrest of the duo comes days following the recovery of Denis Okello alias 2Pee from a comma on Friday last week.
 
 
Okello, who works with Vision Group's Radio Rupiny, slipped into coma after being attacked on his way home. He sustained three deep cuts on the head. The attack was blamed iron bar hit men wreaking havoc in Gulu Town ahead of the Christmas season.
 

According to Okema, the iron bar hit men has since injured two other residents, adding that they have picked up several suspects to help in investigations.    
 
Lucky Bosmic Otim started his musical career in high school and gained fame with his songs on the brutality of the Lord's Resistance Army conflict in Northern Uganda, HIV/AIDS, politics and weddings. He also played a song in tribute to the former President, Dr. Apollo Milton Obote.
