NUP’s Sauda Madada in trouble

Police have said its officers deflated NUP official, Sauda Madada’s vehicle tyres because she refused to stop after being involved in an accident.

Owoyesigyire noted that she gained access to Mulimira road via Passover up to Kamwokya, joining the old Kira road to Kisota road where police pursuing patrol vehicle deflated the tyres of the car after continuously refusing to heed the police call to stop.

”The vehicle came to a halt, while trying to arrest the suspect, she allegedly threw a tantrum and began undressing, prompting the officers to take her to Malcolm medical centre Kisasi for medical attention which was the nearest medical facility,” Owoyesigyire said.

He added that the police and documentation later towed her vehicle was recovered from her while the victim was taken to Mulago hospital for treatment.

Owoyesigyire further noted that they have been notified that Madada left the medical facility where the police left her.
