Police has issued a warning on possible terror attacks ahead of the world cup final in Russia.

“Today we remember eight years since the Kyadondo and Ethiopian village bomb attacks in 2010 where we lost 76 lives,” said police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, on Monday.

He added: “As we therefore approach yet another world cup final we call upon the public for the vigilance and report any suspicious objects and persons.”

In parliament, Hon Komakech Lyandro (Gulu Municipality) informed the house of social media reports alerting Ugandans of impending countrywide attack on 15th and 16th July 2018 while calling on citizens to store enough food.

The world cup final is slated for Sunday July 15, 2018.
