Another ADF suspect behind swift bus explosion arrested with more explosives
Police have in detention another suspected member of the ADF terror group cell in Uganda, who was part of the bomb attacks that rocked Kampala in recent weeks.
The suspect is 24-year-old Isma Kiyemba, a resident of Makandwa village, Kajjansi in Wakiso district.
Police spokesman Fred Enanga told the press that Kiyemba was “tracked down and arrested using advanced surveillance techniques.”
“He led our task teams to his premises in Kajjansi where an assortment of bomb-making materials were recovered in a search,” Enanga said.
Some of the items recovered at the house, Enanga said included chemical fluids, 5 capacitors, electric and copper wires, batteries, screws, nails, a digital timer, 3 electric motors, 5 mobile phones and several sim cards, and a bank Visa card.
He was also reportedly found with a written will and a mission plan.
“We have established that he was the one who assembled the homemade explosive device that was detonated by Matovu Muzafaru on the Swift Safari bus that exploded at Lungala in Mpigi,” he added.
According to Enanga, Kiyemba was in the process of assembling another IED on the instruction of another ADF commander whose details he has availed.
“He was recruited and radicalized by Imam Sulemani Nsubuga who is at large into the ADF terror cell in Lweza,” he added.
Enanga revealed that while the hunting for the remaining agents and collaborators is still ongoing, the terror threat in the country is still on and that members of the public need to remain vigilant.
