Transport have been disrupted along Lira Soroti road as locals engaged police in running battle.
Info256 has been told that a police vehicle attached to Dokolo Central Police Station knocked a child dead and the community in retaliation have blocked the road threatening to torch the vehicle.
Police have been forced to fire live bullets on air to scare the angry mob. By Friday evening, vehicles from Lira cannot access Dokolo town and beyond and traffic from either side have also been blocked.
The accident happened about 16:00 PM on Friday and locals accused police of acting with impunity.
“Police have been behaving like they own this country, they act the way way they wishes without following the law. We want justice,” an angry resident told us.
