Police Arrest Bomb Maker Suspect in Kampala

Police Arrest Bomb Maker Suspect in Kampala

A suspect believed to be involved in bomb-making activities was apprehended by the Counter Terrorism police in collaboration with the Kampala Metropolitan Police.

The individual in question is Mugabi Collins, a resident of Banda. Law enforcement discovered him in possession of a bomb and various materials used for bomb production.

Inside his residence, the authorities uncovered three jerrycans containing potentially hazardous substances: sulphuric acid, methanol, and potassium nitrate. These items are known to be used in the manufacturing of explosive devices.

Additionally, Mugabi was found with written documents detailing step-by-step instructions on how to create a bomb.

The investigation leading to Mugabi’s arrest stemmed from a recent bomb explosion in Banda Zone II, Nakawa division. Local residents alerted the police after one of the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that Mugabe had allegedly constructed detonated accidentally due to his mishandling.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported, thanks to the timely communication from the community and the swift response of the police.

Given the ongoing threats from rebel groups and acts of terrorism in Uganda, law enforcement will continue their inquiry to determine the suspect’s intentions and potential connections. The nation remains on high alert as authorities work diligently to safeguard its security.
