Recall Omah Lay and Tems were arraigned before the Makindye Division court today for flouting COVID-19 guidelines in Uganda and have been remanded in Luzira prison till Wednesday, December 16 for another court hearing.
In a series of tweets after his arraignment, Omah Lay questioned why he wasn’t given a right to a fair hearing in court. He also claimed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nigeria has been trying to secure their release but the Ugandan officials have refused to speak with them.
Below is a video that captured moment Omah Lay and Tems were handcuffed shortly before being taken to prison to be remanded ahead of their next court hearing;
If this doesn’t enrage you, nothing else will. Broad daylight xenophobia in Uganda. We deserve better.
