The Col  is never shot of cards, when it comes to dealing with the travel limits imposed on him since the start of the year.

From mysterious sneak outs from his Kasangati residence to physical brawls with officers, the retired Colonel is constantly up for the game.

This afternoon is a similar fashion; Besigye jumped the police barricades at his gate and made his way to the city center.

According to FDC officials, he was headed for his office on Katanga road.

At his gate, the opposition strong man was reportedly halted by the police officers who laid spikes across the path, blocking his vehicle from exiting.

Not willing to waste time with the officers, he got out of the vehicle, jumped on a passing bodaboda and left for town, leaving his Land Cruiser with the officers; who according to those who were around, “started making frantic calls.”

The infamous blue police van eventually pursed him all the way to Wampewo Avenue where he was seized and taken away.
