Joint Counter Terrorism teams have put out of action an armed terrorist, in Kyebando, Kampala, who turned violent during attempts to have him arrested.
He has been identified as Nsubuga Hamid, the supposed suicide bomber 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 police refused to reveal.
A pistol, ammunition and other evidence of material value were recovered.
“We continue to maintain high levels of vigilance, as we strengthen our responses in countering all forms of terrorism,” said police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga.
