Supporters of Ugandan Singer turned Politician, Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine on Monday clashed with police after authorities cancelled his Easter music shows in Kampala, Arua and Lira.

Tension ensued after police blocked a procession led by Bobi Wine at his One Love Beach in Busabala.

Bobi Wine was arrested and whisked away by a police van to an unknown destination.

Police forcefully opened the car in which the MP was driving, breaking his window and pulled him out. However, singer Nubian Li who was with him in the car was not arrested.

Popular music events promoter Andrew Mukasa of Bajjo events and Abbey Musinguzi alias Abtex who were at centre of organising Bobi Wine's Kyarenga extra concerts which were supposed to happen this festive season were arrested.

The two were nabbed on Monday morning at the first police check- point at One Love Beach-Busabala and briefly detained in a police van before they were also whisked away.
