The suspects, however, denied the charges and were advised to apply for bail on April 27 when they return to court. 

Trouble for the suspects started when a video clip showing men in uniform and others in plainclothes beating Nakate, went viral on social media. The officers were patrolling Lubaga Division to ensure that residents comply with the presidential directives.
