Police publicist, Judith Nabakooba, said the unprecedented security measures were instigated by an intelligence report received by the law enforcement body on Sunday.


“Police last evening received information from credible sources of a plan by a group of people to unleash terror attacks in the city today Monday. The plan involves a group of thugs either on foot or boda-boda riders attacking and burning petrol stations and buildings in the city especially business premises,” said Nabakooba in a statement seen by Chimpreports.


“As Police hunts down the thugs, and takes precautionary deployment in all petrol stations and in the city especially in the central business districts (CBDs), we appeal strongly to proprietors of public places especially petrol stations and business premises to be extra vigilant particularly do not allow strangers near your premises, urgently report to the nearest Police station, security official or LC official of strange movement,” she added.


Sources said the security preparedness of the army stands at Class A to prepare for a firm response to a potential attack.


Nabakooba neither revealed the identity nor nationality of the suspected terrorists.


However, security has for several months been on the edge over fear of Somali terrorist reprisals for the deployment of peacekeepers in Somalia.


The Westgate carnage in Kenya sent cold shivers down the spines of Uganda security chiefs after it emerged that Uganda was as well on the target list of such barbaric attacks.


Nabakooba warned that “whoever is involved in this terror plan especially the youths who have been deceived and prepared to carry out the attack to reconsider and abandon the criminality and evil plans otherwise you will have nobody to blame when the law catches up with you.”


At least 79 people were killed in the twin bomb attacks by Al Shabaab in Kampala in 2010.
