Uganda Police arrested the LC III Chairman of Odupoi Sub County in Arua District and six others for inciting violence in a refugee settlement.
Yesterday, Adrada Jude the LC III Chairman and six other locals from the communities of Imvepi and Omugo refugee settlements are accused of inciting and participating in a riot against the management of the settlements and the humanitarian aid organisations over employment policies.
The locals claim that they are not being treated fairly as far as employments are concerned as most of the employment opportunities are not given to the host communities.
They blocked the roads with big logs and fire hence not allowing motor vehicles of humanitarian organisations to cross to the camps.
Angucia Josephine, the PRO West Nile region Police says they are holding the ring leaders with LC III chairman to assist with investigations.
