A court bailiff has narrowly survived lynching by angry vendors in Jinja central market for attempting to arrest one of their own. It all started when the court bailiff identified as Musa Wamala stormed the market on Thursday morning to arrest John Lukoya, a plastic dealer.

Angry vendors descended on Wamala and started thumping him prompting police officers from the outpost in the market to run to his rescue. 

Lukoya explains that in June this year, Wamala together with Hamza Mobonga who came masquerading as the Jinja District Police Commander and unidentified police officer picked up his son, Reagan Lubaale claiming he was wanted in Entebbe Chief Magistrate's court.

He however, says that along the way, Wamala and his group diverted to Kisubi police station where Lubaale was released without charge. According to Lukoya, on October 02nd 2018, he filed a complaint with the Professional Standards Unit, which denied knowledge of Mobonga.

 

He says the two men showed up today and attempted to arrest him prompting him to demand for the arrest warrant in vain sparking off chaos in the market.

Wamala explains that they wanted to pick up Lukoya for aiding his son to evade arrested over a debt of Shillings 1.7 million arising from civil suit No: 053 of 2017 in Entebbe chief magistrate's court.

"Lukoya aided Lubaale to escape justice last time, so we were arresting him so that he can tell us the whereabouts of Lubaale who is a judgment debtor in this case," Wamala said. 

Vincent Irama, the Jinja District Police Commander advised the warring parties to sort their issues in courts of law.
