he alcohol was being carried in two Toyota wish cars from Uganda en-route to Kisumu and it was being escorted by the flying squad officers from Kisumu. The flying squad officers earlier claimed that they had impounded the alcohol and they were taking the suspects to Kisumu Police station but it has since been confirmed that they were paid to illegally escort the illicit alcohol from Busia to Kisumu, which was to be sold in Kisumu. An argument ensued and the Luanda OCPD became adamant that the illegal alcohol be taken to the police station. Flying squad officers would hear none of it and insisted on taking the alcohol to Kisumu. The alcohol was later taken to the police station in Luanda.

But the vehicles and the alcohol are still being detained at Luanda Police station pending directions as there are some officers who were injured in the gun exchange.
