The police in Uganda have dropped charges against the Nigerian trio of Stanley Didia, aka Omah Lay; Temilade Openyi, alias Ms Tems; and Muyiwa Awomiyi. A Ugandan musician also Tweeted that the Nigerians have been freed.

Ugandan pop star-turned-politician, Bobi Wine, announced Tuesday on Twitter that his lawyers joined in representing Omah Lay, Ms Tems, her manager, and the Ugandans charged.

‘‘Delighted to see the illegal & unfair charges dropped! Evidence that voices matter, that people power can force the people in power to act. We must never underestimate our potential!’’ his tweets partly read.

Bobi Wine, who is contesting against President Museveni who has led Uganda for over 30 years, also shared more information on his official Twitter handle.

Responding to Omah Lay’s earlier tweets wherein he questioned why he was being detained and handcuffed by Ugandan police, Bobi Wine said, ‘‘There is no rule of law in Uganda. This country runs on orders from a small circle of oppressors who dispense orders that are implemented without question. There’s absolutely no reason why our brothers should still be detained yet their concert was under police watch.’’

Speaking further, the vocal artiste who has a large youth following on social media and has become a thorn in the flesh of President Museveni, revealed that Omah Lay’s arrest isn’t about COVID-19.

According to him, their arrest is an act of shame by a corrupt regime that operates on double standards.

He noted, ‘‘He obtained a work permit & performed under police protection! Why arrest him? This as pro-Museveni artists stage street concerts unmolested’’!
