The body of the late Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiliga, which was airlifted from Kololo Kampala after Parliament paid tribute to the fallen legislator, arrived in Arua in the evening. There were crowds of mourners who thronged the airfiled in Arua to receive the body.
However, as the ambulance transporting the body to the home snaked through the crowds, a group of youth demanded to carry the coffin, saying he was their king and they wanted to Honor Him.
According to Arua RDC Peter Dibele, they gave the chance to the youth to carry thier MP.
On arrival at home, the youth turned rowdy and started destroying chairs, tents and everything in the home.
Dibele says the Police was forced to use force to disperse them. The Police, the army and other security personnel took over and a cacophony of gunshots and noise covered the atmosphere at the home.
