JUST IN: Drama as Drunk Driver Hits Powerful VIP's Mortocade, Prompting UPDF Soldiers to Open Fire

There was drama on a major road in Uganda after military officers opened fire after suspecting their boss had come under a life-threatening attack.

It all started when Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) boss, Chief of the Defence Forces (CDF) General Wilson Mbadi, was coming from a meeting when the drama unfolded.

According to the report issued by UPDF Spokesperson Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye, it was around 11 PM on Thursday, when CDF General Wilson Mbadi was coming from a meeting in Mbuya when a lorry circumvented his lead car.

The UPDF soldiers who were escorting their boss were forced to open fire and shoot at the lorry after it had hit the CDF's main car.

"At around 1130 last night while coming from a meeting in Mbuya a lorry driver circumvented CDF's lead car with its lights and GB siren on and headed for the principal's car which he hit. 

Soldiers opened fire deflating the attacking or aggressive lorry. Police arrested the driver," UPDF Spokesperson Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye said.

Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye said they later found out that the driver of the lorry was drunk

"On examination, the driver was drunk up to 89%. He will be arraigned in court. We salute the security team for doing their work," he added.
