Upon arrest, he admitted how he was allegedly kidnapped together with 5 others, in 2015 by ADF at River Nyamwamba, in Kasese, and taken to Kilembe highlands of Mt.

The suspect is well versed with areas of Bundibugyo, Bwera, Luwero, Najjanankumbi and claims he escaped from Califonia ADF Camp, and returned to his home village at Kafunda cell, Ibanda district.
In a separate development, the territorial police in CPS Kampala, have in custody a one Komaketch Ransur alias Kadogo an 18 year old, ADF remnant who was found with live ammunitions.

As the Joint Security Agencies, we are continuing to actively monitor all spaces for ADF elements and remnants, who are in hiding, because they still pose a danger to Ugandans and visitors in the country.
