Ochola Orders Police To Monitor Spaces After Terror Warning

A few days have passed after the United Kingdom issued a terror alert for its citizens currently residing in Uganda. Police boss, Martin Okoth Ochola has directed the force’s counter-terrorism unit to increase vigilance on vital spaces.

The UK government indicated that terrorists intend to carry out an indiscriminate attack on among others; places frequented by foreigners.

‘’Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Uganda. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners. You should be vigilant at all times, especially in crowded areas and public places like hotels, transport hubs, restaurants and bars, and during major gatherings like sporting or religious events,’’ read the UK terror alert.

Ochola has now tasked CT headed by AIGP Abbas Byakagaba to assess the seriousness of the UK terror warning.

In addition to that, he ordered close monitoring of all spaces that terrorists could explore to eliminate any possible threat.

Fred Enanga the police spokesperson said they haven’t detected any terror threats towards Uganda but police will continue to monitor all spaces.

He also added that there is no serious terror suspicion and that the levels will not be elevated to the maximum as it has been done in the past.

Uganda recorded the biggest terror incident in 2010 when over 70 football fans watched the World Cup final.

Terrorists detonated twin bombs at Ethiopian Village restaurant in Kabalagala and Kyadondo Rugby Club. The Somalian terror group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for this attack.
