The followers who mostly included women chanted songs out of the police station.

They demanded that Yiga is released unconditionally but Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said that new charges have been pooled against Yiga and his file has been referred to the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID).
“His case will be handled by CID headquarters. They have called for him and his files because they say they already have other files on him,”
He has since been transfered to a special investigations unit in Kireka.
