Four re-arrested suspects in the murder of former police spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, are being detained at Nalufenya in Jinja District.
Police spokesperson, Asan Kasingye, said the suspects were re-arrested by Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) shortly after being released by court in Nakawa.
CMI later handed them over to police and they were transferred to Nalufenya.
They are; Ahmed Senfuka, Umaru Maganda, Ibrahim Lisa and Mr Abdul Musa Ojegere.
Senfuka was waylaid at Spear Motors by plain clothed men armed with pistols and dragged into a waiting vehicle.
“As police, we did not participate in the re-arrest but we received them from CMI,” he told press at police headquarters in Naguru.
Army spokesperson, Brig Richard Karemire, told Daily Monitor the suspects were rearrested in a joint operation by army and police on suspicion of being members of Jamil Mukulu’s rebel group, the Allied Democratic Force (ADF).
“CMI told us that these people were arrested on suspicion of being members of ADF,” Kasingye said.
“We have them in our cells but we don’t know when they will be taken to court because of the ongoing prosecutors’ industrial action.”
