Some Eight Arsenal fans have been nabbed in Jinja, the city of Ugandan after celebrating the football club’s win against Manchester United in the English Premier League.
The arsenal fans were seen wearing the club’s red jersey and carrying a symbolic trophy to celebrate.
The Ugandan Police disclosed they didn’t have a permit to hold the procession which is a public order and punishable offence in the country.
The Arsenal football fans were travelling in a convoy of five vehicles on Monday morning when they were intercepted by policemen. One of them was carrying a trophy they had bought at a local store in the city.
“I don’t know what we have done but we were simply celebrating our victory over rivals Manchester United,” Arsenal fan Baker Kasule is quoted as saying.
James Mubi, Who is the regional police boss and a self-declared Arsenal fan, told the newsmen the force had not reviewed the fans’ charges but wondered why they were celebrating the win when only half of the matches in the season had been played.
