The Ugandan MP and pop star Bobi Wine has been accused of conspiracy in a non military personnel court soon after a military court liberated him.

Bobi Wine, whose genuine name is Robert Kyagulanyi, was instantly re-captured subsequent to being discharged.

His legal counselors say he has been struck in detainment, which the military and President Yoweri Museveni deny.

He was kept alongside 30 others in front of a week ago’s by-decision in the north-western town of Arua.

The captures have raised pressure the nation over and started challenges. Police have closed the homes of various restriction government officials, and prominent resistance figure Kizza Besigye has been captured in the capital Kampala.

The BBC’s Catherine Byaruhanga, who was at court in the northern town of Gulu, says he was unable to stand by himself and there were moments when he was visibly in pain.

His lawyer said he needed “urgent medical care”, Uganda’s New Vision newspaper reported.

After being freed and told that charges of unlawfully possessing firearms were dropped by the General Court Martial, Bobi Wine was told by his lawyer that he was under arrest again and he was put into a police vehicle with his wife to be taken to the Chief Magistrates Court.

He was remanded in custody until 30 August, when he is due back in court.

There have been protests against his detention in Uganda and calls by global stars such as Chris Martin, Damon Albarn and Angelique Kidjo for his release.

On Tuesday the Ugandan military apologised after soldiers were caught on film beating up a journalist who was covering a demonstration supporting Mr Wine.
