The Territorial Police of greater Bushenyi and Sheema has in custody students belonging to Nganwa High School Kabwohe for inciting violence on the night of October 9, 2023.
According to police spokesperson Fred Enanga, it was established that it is a tradition in the school for the rest of the students to beat up senior four students as a way of bidding them farewell.
However, according to Enanga, the tables were turned as the senior four students did the attack.
