On Tuesday, two enforcement officers from Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) attached to Arua customs have been airlifted to Kampala. These two officers were severely beaten by residents of Yobuyia cell in Ayivu East constituency in Arua city.
In the past four days, a URA vehicle knocked a Congolese national and died on the spot near Andelizu trading centre in Vurra County in Arua district.
This made residents of the area to pour at the scene attacking the officers and beating them into coma. The driver of the URA Double Cabin truck sped off when he saw the swelling crowd approaching.
The relatives of the deceased however refused to pick the body and it is still lying at Vurra customs up to now.
