Amidst reports that Lumbuye had secretly been deported to Uganda and was being held at an army detention center in Gulu, the government had indicated that Lumbuye was set to be deported back to Uganda to face charges.

Fred Enanaga the police spokesperson informed journalists that they didn’t have him in their custody and promised that when they get clear information about Lumbuye, he will come out and update Ugandans.

This wasn’t enough for the National Unity Platform (NUP), they engaged in Lumbuye’s matter and hired a lawyer from Turkey to handle the storm surrounding his deportation that was approaching.
