Security agencies arrest suspect in Swift bus bomb explosion

The joint Anti-Terrorism taskforce and the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence have arrested a one Yusuf Muwonge, a suspect in a recent explosion that detonated in a Swift bus in Lungala, Mpigi district last month.

Muwonge had been on security’s wanted list for allegedly taking part in assembling the improvised explosive devise-IED that exploded inside the bus, killing his colleague Isaac Matovu alias Muzafaru.

Security agencies say that Muwonge was operating in the same domestic terror cell with Matovu, but had shifted from his known address in Lweza, to Wamala Katooke, Nansana and later to Kirek-Bbira.

On Thursday night, security teams raided a home in Kireka B-Bulenga along the Mityana road where Muwonge was reportedly hiding. But he evaded arrest until Saturday night when he was found in another hideout in Wakiso.

AIGP Asan Kasingye confirmed Muwonge’s arrest through his twitter handle.
