A joint Counter Terrorism Team has put out of action a suspected armed terrorist.
The suspected terrorist was gunned down on Monday in Kyebando, Kampala, after turning violent during attempts to have him arrested, according to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga.
He added that the suspect has been identified as Nsubuga Hamid, who escaped from Pader, after their plans to attack mourners at the burial of the late DIGP, Lt Gen Paul Lokech were foiled by security.
“He was countered while on an assassination mission whose details we can’t reveal. A pistol, ammunition and other evidence of material value were recovered,” Enanga said in a statement on Monday.
“We continue to maintain high levels of vigilance, as we strengthen our responses in countering all forms of terrorism.”
