THE Police yesterday quizzed four artistes over their involvement in the assault on Tuesday of Makerere University Dean of Students, John Ekudu and his family.
Pearl of Africa Music award winner Jose Chameleon, Bebe Cool, Ragga Dee and Bobi Wine of the Ssunda Ssunda fame, were arrested on Wednesday night and had a stint in the Wandegeya Police cells.
They spent a greater part of yesterday at the Central Police Station (CPS).
The artistes, who reportedly went into hiding on learning that their colleague, Bobi Wine, had been arrested, turned up at CPS following a Police summon.
Bebe Cool turned up at 11:15am spotting a trademark hood over his dreadlocks. He was followed 35 minutes later by Chameleone, this time wearing thick-soled black shoes. Ragga Dee came later with the other artistes. The Police brought Bobi wine to CPS later.
The four were named among suspects who roughed up Ekudu, his wife and son Paul in Kamwokya, a city suburb, following a fatal accident in which their friend died. The Police quizzed them for over two hours.
The Ekudu’s were admitted to Mulago hospital but the Police yesterday said they were in a stable condition.
The artistes were interrogated before eacgh recorded a statement and released on Police bond. There was drama outside CPS yesterday afternoon as the artistes walked out when Bebe lost his ‘Cool’ and made a dash for photographers as they clicked their cameras at them. The Police said they were taking the matter seriously the reason it was transferred from the division to CPS.
“We are investigating them over two issues: the accident and the assault, which is a criminal offence,” Nyeko said shortly after meeting the suspects in which they denied having a hand in the 11:15pm incident on Prince Charles Drive.
“The investigations are getting deeper and anyone found to have had a hand will automatically go to court,” Nyeko warned.
Ekudu’s son, who works with Bank of Uganda, was driving a Toyota Levin when it knocked down a bodaboda cyclist, killing the passenger, Ssebaduka, a musician.
