MR Francis Ayume has said he would consult the Inspector General of Police, Maj. General Katumba Wamala and Chieftancy of Military Intelligence, Lt Col Noble Mayombo, to find out why the Police in Arua have not impounded an army vehicle with a civilian number plate.
He said the vehicle was being driven by a sergeant who also drives a vehicle being used by his opponent in the parliamentary race.
Ayume, also the speaker of Parliament, is vying for Koboko parliamentary seat. His rivals in the race are Elly Asiku Elias, a principal internal auditor with the Ministry of Gender and Social development.
"I have complained to the police but no action has been taken. I am going to Kampala to consult with the Police boss and the chief of Intelligence to handle the matter," Ayume said.
His complaint follows a meeting he had with the Regional Police Commander North Western, Geoffrey Erach, the Arua deputy Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Haruna Sebbi and the Moyo RDC, Ahmed Awongo at Arua Airfield.
"My supporters have always been intimidated by my opponent's supporters using the vehicle," he added. He said all was well but the Monitor was denying him publicity.
