Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has been rearrested within minutes after he was freed by the General Court Martial.
Bobi was freed by the Army court after the state had withdrawn charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition slapped against the MP last week.
Bobi Wine who looked frail appeared before the Army court in Gulu. He was arrested last week alongside over 33 others on allegations of stoning President Yoweri Museveni's motorcade in Arua.
Bobi, like Museveni were in Arua to campaign for their respective candidates. After being freed, Bobi was arrested on the orders of Crime Investigations and Intelligence Directorate (CIID) boss Grace Akullo who was also in the Army court in Gulu today.
Bobi was freed at around 11.21am but arrested shortly and driven with his wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi to Chief Magistrate's court in Gulu where he is facing treason charges.
He was flown last night from Makindye military barracks where he's been remanded since August 15. At Gulu Magistrate's court, prosecution asked court to remand Bobi to Gulu Main Prison like his co-accused as police is still carrying out investigations.
Bobi's lawyer, Medard Sseggona said they do not object to the suspect being remanded but he should be remanded in hospital so as to receive healthcare. Sseggona said they do not object to Bobi being guarded while in hospital so as to receive adequate medical care.
Sseggona argued that when the same court last week remanded the co-accused until August 30, the allegedly tortured suspects have not received treatment.
Bobi, he said has only received painkillers and massages to heal the swellings on his face while in detention in Makindye barracks. Bobi was remanded until August 30 but allowed to access healthcare at a facility of his choice.
