“(He) was taken to an unknown location.” “During the night, dozens of our agents were arrested,” the party said in a statement.

Police raided the FDC office in Omoro District last night, arresting staff, leaders, and supporters, according to the statement.

According to Aswa River Region police spokesman David Ongom Mudong, the arrests were made to “curtail saboteurs whose intentions are to disrupt the voting process.”

According to him, Ojara is being held at the Gulu Central Police Station, while the other suspects are being held at the Omoro Central Police Station.

“Last night, the cops raided our offices, confiscated agent letters, and even took some of our money and equipment.” “On Thursday, 15 of our leaders were arrested,” FDC President Patrick Amuriat said.

Amuriat was photographed in a standoff with police, whom he accused of erecting a roadblock near the party’s offices in Omoro Town Council.

“POA used defiance to remove the barriers, allowing our team to pass.” “The bold move saved many of our members who had been arrested despite having Electoral Commission polling agent tags,” the party said.
