Wasswa Birigwa, has announced that he has forgiven the party president, Patrick Oboi Amuriat, and Secretary General, Nandala Mafabi, for their alleged involvement in his “arrest” last week.
The FDC headquarters turned into a battleground on Thursday last week, when unidentified individuals prevented Birigwa from holding his scheduled conference and held him captive within the party premises.
Journalists who were present to cover the presser were also violently attacked, with some of their equipment being taken and many sustaining injuries.
After being held for more than eight hours, Birigwa was eventually seen scaling down the fence of the FDC office.
