Three Suspected ADF Rebels Killed by Ugandan Security

Uganda’s joint security agencies say they have arrested a man, suspected to be linked to rebel outfit Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), for attempting to smuggle what is said to be explosives into the country.

The arrest came a few days after Ugadnan security confirmed that they had killed three suspected ADF rebels who dared them to a gun fire exchange.

According to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, on June 29, 2023 at around 11:30am, three suspected ADF rebels were put out of action during a gun fire exchange, at their hideout in Toonde Village, Nsala Parish, Lwamate Sub County, in Kiboga District.

An SMG rifle with 25 rounds of ammunition was recovered at the scene, the police publicist added.

Now, Enanga has also revealed that a man, suspected to have links with rebels, has been arrested in the Arua with materials believed to be explosive.

The suspect claimed that a Tanzanian businessman had asked him to take the consignment to a DR Congo gold mine.

“We also arrested a one Adomat Christopher a 42-year-old resident of Bazaar cell, Arua district with a consignment of suspected explosives, that he was attempting to smuggle through Mutukula on the 26.06.2023 at 4:00pm,” revealed Enanga.

“He claims they were given by a Tanzanian businessman only known as Donald, for him to transport them to the DRC for gold mines.”

The arrest was made a few days after the UK warned her citizens in Uganda to be vigilant, saying there was credible intelligence reports that terrorists were planning to strike Kampala. The UK terror alert followed a deadly incident in Kasese where 42 people, mostly secondary school students, were killed in a night attack. (See Details Here and There).
