Security forces have arrested the alleged leader of Uganda Homeland Liberation Force (UHLF), one of the rebel outfits blamed for the recent attacks on Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) detaches in northern Uganda.

The commander of Land Forces, Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba said Saturday that Openjuru Howard was arrested in Uganda by the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) operatives in “a carefully planned operation that took many months.”

“Ugandan intelligence has arrested the leader of the so called Uganda Homeland Liberation Force, Openjuru Howard, inside the country. It was a carefully planned operation that took many months. CMI is proving that it is a truly excellent intelligence service. Uganda ni hatari!” he tweeted.

Before, one of the alleged members of the rebel group, Patrick Oryema, 60, surrendered to the security team in Nebbi District.

This followed an attack on UPDF detach in Zombo District on another rebel outfit, Co-operative for the Development of Congo (CODECO).
