The Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court has committed nine suspects to the High Court to face trial on terrorism charges.
The suspects are Moses Katende, Abdul Latif, Adam Goloba and Pyzo Musana among others.
They reportedly attacked the Principal Judge, Dr. Flavian Zeija, Busiika Police Station, Bukwo Chief Administrative Officer Charles Ogwang, and several Supermarkets including Flower Shoppers in Kabuusu and Harriet General Store before robbing guns from security guards.
The suspects yesterday appeared before the Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayizzi for an update on the progress of investigations into the case against them.
The prosecution alleges that between 2021 and 2023 in diverse places in Central and Eastern Uganda, the suspects attacked several government facilities, fuel stations, security guards, and police officers, resulting in loss of lives, injuries, and property.
The accused persons are charged with terrorism, murder, attempted murder, robbery, and belonging to ADF, a terrorist group.
Ivan Kyazze, the State Attorney from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions told the court that investigations into the charges against the suspects are complete and that there is sufficient evidence to pin the accused persons in the High Court when the trial commences. The DPP further states that during the trial, she will also bring the evidence from the CCTV camera which enabled the eyewitnesses to clearly identify Katende, Weduma, and Musana while attacking the police station.
