President Museveni has accused the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) armed rebel group of being behind plans and orders to kill Ugandans after security foiled a planned suicide terror attack in the country.
On Thursday, security forces arrested Abdul Katumba, alias Ben with Improvised Explosive Devices targeting mourners at the former Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) Lt Gen Paul Lokech’s burial.
According to Mr. Museveni, this was retaliation by the ADF following Mr. Lokech’s role in massive arrests of ADF elements in Uganda as well as his valiant efforts in ousting Al-Shabab terrorists from Mogadishu in Somalia.
Through his condolence message to the family of Lt Gen Lokech, Mr Museveni warned that he was moving closer to launching an offensive to halt the incursion of the armed terrorist group based in North Kivu, Eastern Congo. END.
