Sources say IGP agreed with Nakalema and he suspended Obwana from office pending investigations.
We have now been briefed that investigations are over and any time from now he is likely to be arrested.
However we could not get official comment from police Authority as PRO Enanga and Grace Akullo failed to pick our calls several times.
