She later managed to escape from the rebels and in 2007, Aciro graduated from the International Development Department of Birmigham University w8th an MSc in Poverty Reduction and Development Management.
After graduating, Aciro returned to Northern Uganda thus becoming a Member of Parliament.
Aciro was also involved in the national peace talks between government and LRA rebels to resolve the conflict.
Meanwhile, Sam Engola, the NRM party vice chairman for Northern Uganda welcomed Aciro and others, saying they made a right decision.
He told all other opposition Members willing to defect that NRM door is wide open.
