Bobi Wine said the military had surrounded his house for the last two days and it “wreaked havoc” on Friday after taking over his compound.

“They have taken over my compound. They have arrested my security guard and beat him up so bad,” Bobi Wine said

“My phone, my wife’s phone and all the phones of the people I am with have been blocked. That is the situation now,” he added.

“The military has taken over my house and are not answering my questions. Me and my wife are stricken with fear. We don’t know what will happen now to our lives.”

Bobi Wine tweeted the news just hours after he said “every legal option is on the table” to challenge the official results.“They have taken over my compound. They have arrested my security guard and beat him up so bad,”

“My phone, my wife’s phone and all the phones of the people I am with have been blocked. That is the situation now,” he added.

“The military has taken over my house and are not answering my questions. Me and my wife are stricken with fear. We don’t know what will happen now to our lives.”
