06 Dec 2023

KAMPALA: Uganda’s joint security forces have placed a sh20m stake for whoever will provide information leading to the arrest of two suspects behind the two explosives, which went off in different parts of Kampala at the weekend.

The Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force of CMI, ISO, CT and CI have put up a serious manhunt for two notorious ADF suspects, for their alleged roles in a series of terror attacks.

Police said the suspects used IEDs explosives not only in the Central Business District of Kampala and Butambala, but also for other terror attacks, along the Kasese Bundibugyo axis, with the DRC.

“The goal of the wanted terror suspects is to murder Ugandans, and also cause panic and fear within the community,” police said.

“We have shared the photograph of Kamusi Musa, who is now the commander of the Splinter ADF cell, that was formerly led by a one Kyoto Abdulrashid alias Njovu, who was arrested during an aggressive pursuit and fire exchange, by the UPDF Marines and CMI on Lake Edward on the 1.11.2023.”

“During the fire exchange 2 ADF rebels were put out of action, and others escaped including Kamusi Musa,” police added.

Police said their Counter-terror teams are also hunting for a one Habib Sulaiman alias Kijana, who is actively involved in the various attacks using locally manufactured IEDs within the greater Kampala areas of Kabalagala, Katooke-Nansana, and the foiled bomb attacks at Mabiiito-Nateete, Bunamwaya, Pastor Kayanja’s Church and the Kabibi Churches in Butambala.

The targeted places are crowded areas that are soft targets, like entertainment places, churches, and urban centres.

“We advise the public not to approach these two wanted ADF suspects, because they are armed and dangerous. Our appeal instead, is to anyone who believes they have additional information that could assist in this investigation to contact the National Operations Command Centre on Telephone numbers 0800199699, 0707600773 or 0776999136.”

“A substantial cash reward of sh20m each, awaits, any member of the public, who avails us very credible information that can lead to the arrest of the wanted terror suspects.”

“And to further remind the public that this investigation, like all the others we have handled in the past months and years, once again shows that terrorism still exists. Our Counter terror team of officers, are making extensive and urgent inquiries, in order to locate the detail both ADF rebels, as quickly as possible, before they cause any harm to citizens.”
