AIGP Asan Kasingye, the chief Political Commissar, has addressed the media on “guidelines to the public on terror threats” at Police Headquarters Naguru.

Kasingye said terrorism is any act of violence or threat of violence carried out for purposes of influencing government or an international organization, or intimidating the public and for a political, religious, social and economic aim indiscriminately without due regard to the safety of others or property.

He said terrorism manifests in form of bombings, assassinations, kidnaps, hostage taking, hijack, arson, poisoning, armed attacks etc., aiming at intimidating and coercing the population as well as undermining government.

“As a member of the public, you are the first line of defense and you can prevent terrorism by doing the following,” Kasingye noted.

“Your eyes are the best weapon against terrorism. If you see anything, inform your immediate local authority or call the police on the counter number of your local Police, OR, Toll free numbers; 112, 999, 0800199699, 080012229.”

He said any unattended luggage will be evaluated by police response teams.

In worst case scenarios, such luggage will be destroyed.
