Four people have been injured in Angagura Sub County, after a scuffle broke out between the National Resistance Movement (NRM) and those of opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) supporters in a by-election for Aruu North MP.

The injured include:  Pece Division LC3 Chairman in Gulu Municipality of FDC, Walter Oringa a polls agent, Oryema Francis the LC I of Anga-gura with his wife Margaret Achiro and a man who as only identified Dennis as Nono.

Nono is said to have suffered a fracture on his arm, and Komakech is nursing bruises on his head and arms.

Bosco Otim the Aswa, Regional Police Commander, said a scuffle broke out following a disagreement between the LC1 and the people who were involved in the fight.

The seat fell vacant following a Court of Appeal ruling.

The race is mainly between NRM’s James Kidega and Lucy Achiro, an independent candidate who is FDC party leaning.

Others in the race are: Vincent Okot Obutu of the Democratic Party, Justin Boswell Oryema, and Henry Komakech who are independent candidates.
