When the traffic officer confronted him, he remained adamant prompting the officer to pluck off the car number plate, registration UAP 684K. Nyakana then reportedly jumped out of his car and assaulted the officer.

As another traffic officer Joseph Ejiku rushed to rescue his colleague, Nyakana reportedly snatched his car plate drove off.

Kambale currently nursing wounds at Mulago hospital   reported the matter to Katwe Police accusing Nyakana of assault and not respecting government uniform.
