Ugandan security forces swiftly took pop star and opposition lawmaker Bobi Wine into custody when he arrived from the United States on Thursday, further angering supporters who have protested his alleged torture by security forces and a treason charge.
As soon as he landed, security forces promptly chauffeured him away.
"After landing at Entebbe, security surrounded him and took him away".
Police escorted him there from the airport - a move which he said was against his wishes.

Bobi Wine wrote on social media also adding that none of his family members will pick him but he will instead find them home.

"He (Bobi) is heading home".
Those who dared them were either arrested or beaten, and forced to retreat.

Three-quarters of Uganda's population is under the age of 35 and Bobi Wine told the BBC he has come home to lead a people-power revolution.
But a police official said he was being escorted to his home and was not under arrest. The government denies that he was mistreated.
Some of them sang altered renditions of a popular pro-Milton Obote song, substituting the name of the former two-time Uganda President, who died in 2005, with that of Mr Wine.
