Charles Etukuri, a New Vision journalist who was recently abducted by security operatives has been released.

The development has been confirmed by New Vision on their official Facebook page.

They posted; “Vision Group journalist Etukuri Charles who was abducted has been released,”

Earlier today, High Court had issued orders against security minister Lt. Gen Henry Tumukunde and the Director General Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Col. Kaka Bagyenda to produce Etukuri whether dead or alive (Habeas Corpus) by February 26 afternoon.

Etukuri was allegedly kidnapped outside Vision Group premises last Tuesday afternoon by men dressed in military fatigue. They were reportedly driving a double cabin vehicle Reg No. UAH 038A.

New Vision management alleged that Etukuri’s kidnap is likely connected to the stories he covered last Saturday and Sunday about the alleged murders. The murders were linked to officials in Internal Security Organisation (ISO) and Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI).
