Security Agencies Hunting for Another Muslim Sheikh Linked to ADF Rebels

Counter terror teams are hunting for another Muslim cleric following the killing of Sheikh Muhammad Kirevu aka Abbas Kirevu in Kyengera Town Council on November 18.

According to security agencies, Sheikh Kirevu was shot dead because he had tried to resist arrest.

Now, police spokesperson Fred Enanga has revealed that counter terror teams are looking for another Muslim cleric named as Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga.

“We are still actively hunting for Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga, who is still at large,” said Enanga.

Enanga further claimed that Sheikh Kirevu and Sulaiman Nsubuga were actively involved in facilitating the recruitment of rebels and planning of attacks.

“Both Sheikh Muhammad Kirevu and Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga of Kajjansi, were strong ADF rebel collaborators, who were using their networks to identify vulnerable individuals and families, to recruit from,” claimed Enanga.

“They thereafter, facilitated their movement to the DRC, for training and radicalization into the rebel ranks. They were also providing material support to operatives involved in the terror attacks.”

He also assured Ugandans ADF rebels would be crushed.

“We want to assure Ugandans that our top priority remains preventing and countering terrorist attacks in our country. The recovery and detonation of dangerous IEDs, together with the arrests of operatives and collaborators, serves as a strong warning to all those who support terrorism and related acts of violence against our country.”
