Police kill suspected terrorist in Kampala

Police kill suspected terrorist in Kampala

​Uganda’s security services have gunned down a suspected terrorist in the capital city, Kampala.

This has been confirmed by the Police spokesperson Fred Enanga saying the suspect was put out of action during an arrest.

“Our joint Counter Terrorism teams, have put out of action an armed terrorist, in Kyebando, Kampala, who turned violent during attempts to have him arrested,” said Police spokesman, Fred Enanga on Monday evening.

According to Enanga, the suspect has been identified as Hamid Nsubuga.

Enanga said the supposed suicide bomber escaped from Pader district in Northern Uganda “after their plans to attack mourners at the Burial of the late DIGP, Lt Gen Paul Lokech were foiled by security.”

In August 2021, a suspected suicide bomber was arrested in a lodge in Pader after assembling explosives.

On interrogation, the suspect provided information that led to the arrest of several suspected ADF elements in Kampala.

​Enanga said Hamid was “countered while on an assassination mission whose details we can’t reveal.”

A pistol, ammunition and other evidence of material value were recovered from the scene, according to police.

Museveni recently accused ADF, a fundamentalist Islamist movement operating in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo of perpetrating terror in Uganda and the region.

Enanga said security will continue to “maintain high levels of​​ vigilance, as we strengthen our responses in countering all forms of terrorism.”
