Gunfire rocked Masindi town yesterday afternoon as prison warders pursued a prisoner who attempted to escape. Prison warders shot in the air when a prisoner facing murder charges attempted to escape from court. Absolomi Rugadya had been brought to court to answer charges related to the murder of a woman last year. He is reported to have taken advantage of the laxity around the court premises to escape. Rugadya was later re-arrested and brought before Masindi Chief Magistrate, Moses Mutanzindwa to face another charge of attempting to escape.
