“Opio escaped from the mob, climbed over a perimeter wall fence of former Soroti Municipality MP, Mike Mukula, and was shot in the left arm,” Bugolobi Police post boss, Nelson Mungasa said.

According to Mungasa, Opio, is a student of Ebenezer Secondary School in Kisugu.

Speaking to New Vision from his nursing bed at Mulago hospital, Opio said: “I did not steal the phone as alleged. I got it from my schoolmate.”
