Another double from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka saw Arsenal beat Manchester United 3-2, with Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez getting the visitors’ consolation goals.
Scores of Arsenal fans took to the streets of Jinja, Uganda to celebrate the victory but were stopped by police.
At least eight fans were also arrested after police said they did not have a permit to march.
“I don’t know what we did but we were simply celebrating our victory against rivals Manchester United,” Baker Kasule, one of the Arsenal fans, told Daily Monitor.
Meanwhile, lawyer and rights activist Agather Atuhair believes the police action is a violation of fans’ freedom.
She explained to the police “High-handed even after the Constitutional Court struck down all draconian provisions that gave them unfettered power to restrict constitutionally guaranteed freedom of association and assembly.”
Regional police chief James Mubi, however, felt that police should have been informed before fans flooded the streets to celebrate.
“What happens if there is an altercation with rival fans? They didn’t inform the police to provide security for their march,” He told the BBC.
