2 Suspected Terrorists Arrested Entering Uganda as Insurgents Hit England Again

Uganda Police is warning members of the public to be extra vigilant in the wake of a second terror attack in England on the weekend.

Addressing journalists on Monday, page the police spokesperson Asan Kasingye revealed that 2 suspected Somalia nationals were arrested at the Busia border point trying to cross into Uganda

“On May 26th, Faraus Muhammad, 15, and Aways Musa were intercepted as they tried to enter Uganda,” Kasingye said.

“We became suspicious after these suspects had indicated in their passports that they were travelling to Kenya from Somalia but on reaching Nairobi, they jumped onto buses to Uganda.”

The police mouthpiece explained that the suspects were found in possession of multiple passports, raising suspicion about their motives.

He warned managers of events and public places to work closely with police to ensure they secure the places.

“All unclaimed items in busy places such as markets, churches and hospitals should be reported,” Kasingye advised.

Two weeks ago, a terrorist detonated an explosive and killed over 20 people who were at a music concert at the Manchester Arena in England.

9 days later, on Saturday, suspected terrorists driving a van and wielding knives once again hit the English capital London, killing seven people and injuring 21.

In 2010, terrorists hit Uganda killing over 70 people who were watching World Cup finals at Lugogo and Ethiopian Restaurant in Kabalagala.

Somali based Al Shabaab insurgents claimed responsibility of the attack as punishment to Uganda for sending troops through the AMISOM to Mogadishu.
