The arrested are suspects in the murder of Kirumira

It turns out that Kateregga was one of the ADF terrorists that had benefited from Amnesty in the past. This, therefore, is to put on notice all the killers that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23 ). Members of the public that may have some more information about this particular gang of Kateregga should inform the police.”

One person was shot dead and nine others arrested in an operation in Namugoona, Lubaga Division on 28th.09.2018 in an operation targeting a terrorist cell in the area.

The operation was carried out on Friday night by operatives from the Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force-JAT. The dead suspect was identified as Abdul Kateregga, whose body was taken to Mulago Hospital for Post Mortem.
