Police has spoken out on the shooting and killing of Sheikh Muhammad Kirevu aka Abbas Kirevu.

Police spokesperson, CP Fred Enanga, said security arrested Musa Abdullah Ayebare, one of the 13 ADF suspects who led them to the home of Sheikh Abbas Kirevu located at Gangu, Busabala Road.

Abbas reportedly recruited Ayebare into terror activities.

He was not around and he further led them to his second home, located at Katereke cell, Kyengera town council in Wakiso District.

The Sheikh was arrested and resisted handcuffs. He however, attempted to escape while being escorted to the patrol car, which led to a shooting, killing him instantly.

Both Sheikh Muhammad Kirevu and Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga of Kajjansi, were strong ADF rebel collaborators, who were using their networks to identify vulnerable individuals and families, to recruit from.

They thereafter, facilitated their movement to the DRC, for training and radicalization into the rebel ranks.

They were also providing material support to operatives involved in the terror attacks.

“We are still actively hunting for Sheikh Sulaiman Nsubuga, who is still at large. We want to assure Ugandans that our top priority remains preventing and countering terrorist attacks in our country,” said Enanga.

The recovery and detonation of dangerous IEDs, together with the arrests of operatives and collaborators, serves as a strong warning to all those who support terrorism and related acts of violence against our country.

“We shall pursue them all. And now that we are entering the festive season, we anticipate an increase in shopping and other business activities. We however, wish to caution the public against gathering in large numbers and soft targets, due to vulnerability concerns.”
