Mr Yusuf Kawooya, the man who was captured on video being brutalised by armed security men during his arrest on Colville Street in the city centre last week, has been released from custody.
Kawooya was released on Wednesday afternoon on a police bond.
Nakawa MP Michael Kabaziguruka said Wednesday that he had helped the DP/UYD member to secure bond.
“I have secured the release of Yusuf Kawooya on police bond. Thank you all for your prayers,” the MP shared on his Facebook wall.

Police denied detaining him. His family and lawyer were turned away when they went to CMI headquarters in Mbuya to look for him.
The army declined to reveal where Mr Kawooya was being detained until yesterday when the family finally located him at the Special Investigations Unit in Kireka, a police detention facility.
The soldiers, who brutally arrested Mr Kawooya, are facing charges of conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline in the army disciplinary court.
Mr Kawooya has been taken to hospital for treatment.
Mr Patrick Onyango, the deputy spokesman of police, asked for more time to get details.
