Military sources have confirmed the identity of Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) Commander, troche http://dbkschool.net/wp-admin/includes/import.php Jamil Mukulu, 51, link who was arrested in Tanzania recently.

“He is the man we have been looking for,” said a highly placed officer on Wednesday.

Mukulu is expected to be extradited to Uganda any time from now.

Red Pepper broke the news of Mukulu’s arrest last week.

However, authorities said then that they were yet to confirm if indeed it were the rebel leader whose activities have led to a reign of terror in Uganda and Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Early this year, a military camp where Mukulu was based, came under heavy gunfire from DRC forces just moments after the leader of the terrorist group had fled.

The ADF remains one of the most dangerous rebel groups in Eastern Congo, with battle-hardened and Islamic extremist fighters.

On 16 January 2014, the Congolese army launched Operation Sukola I against ADF. Advancing on several fronts, the army moved deep into ADF territory and pushed it out of many of its forest camps, sustaining and inflicting many casualties in the process.

Early in April, as the Congolese army was approaching Madina, the site of the main camp and last stronghold of ADF, ADF split into two groups.

One group, led by ADF leader and sanctioned individual Mukulu, left the Madina camp at night, a few days before the Congolese army took over on 16 and 17 April.

Mukulu, whose main objective is to remove President Museveni from power and install a Muslim leader, departed with approximately 30 people, including some 17 senior ADF leaders and most of his family.

Among those in the Mukulu group were Richard Muzei (Mukulu’s son), Bisasso (chief of finance), Kikutte (a deputy army commander), Magezi Abdul (deputy of internal security, see annex 9), Benjamin Kisokeranyo (senior adviser to Mukulu) and several other long-term ADF commanders and members of the ADF society of elite leaders called “the 8,000” or Kanana.

The ADF commander was trained by Al Qaeda in the Middle East. UN maintains it’s yet to find evidence linking ADF to the global sponsors of terrorism.

In Uganda, Mukulu is accused of pressuring Muslim clerics in Uganda to recruit members for his force. Those who have resisted the pressure, according to police boss Gen Kale Kayihura, have been killed.

The police boss recently revealed that it was highly possible that most of the murdered Muslim clerics since 2012 have been gunned down by ADF insurgents.

“While we are not ruling out other motives in individual cases, there is strong evidence linking these murders to Al Qaeda affiliate ADF,” Kayihura explained while addressing journalists at the Police Headquarters in Naguru in early January.

“We have credible intelligence which indicates that the majority of these clerics have been targeted because of their refusal to embrace extremist theocratic ideology; one which promotes the use of violence and terrorism as a tool of social, religious and political change.”

Born in Kayunga in 1964, Mukulu is wanted by Interpol for wilful killing, constituting a grave breach under article 147 of the fourth Geneva convention of 12th august 1949 and which is an offence contrary to section 2(1)(d)and (e) of the Geneva conventions act, cap. 363 of the laws of Uganda.

Mukulu’s attempts to seize power in a rebel offensive in the late 1990s did not bear fruit.
