The five suspects including Omar Awadhi Omar, Mohammad Hamid Suleiman alias Abu Zainab, Abubakaer Batemyeto, Dr Ismail Kalule and Yahaya Suleiman Mbuthia were arrested and charged afresh in a Jinja Court over planning terror attack yesterday.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga in a press statement said while at Luzira Upper prisons, they allegedly created documents and materials connected with preparations to facilitate, assist or engage co-conspirators to undertake terrorist acts.

“A reinvestigation begun immediately after the hand written documents and related materials asking members to conduct hostile reconnaissance around security facilities and other vital installations, in preparation for violence, were seized and fresh evidence of the new plot that connected the suspects to the materials, recovered,” the statement reads.

Adding; “The police and sister security agencies continue to maintain vigilance to be ahead of threats of terrorism. We also encourage the public to always remain alert and report any suspicious activity to the police, other security personnel or local council officials for immediate attention.”
