The 11th Battalion of the Uganda Peoples’ Defense Forces (UPDF) has accomplished a decisive victory by neutralizing two terrorists and apprehending two women linked to the tragic events at Lhubiriha Secondary School.

In June, assailants targeted Lhubiriha Secondary School in Kasese district, resulting in the loss of at least 37 lives, including students.

In an official statement on Saturday, President Yoweri Museveni identified the attackers as members of the Tanzanian Arab group led by Abu wa Kasi. The UPDF executed the elimination of two terrorists and the capture of two women at Mayongosi, southeast of Beni Town.

President Museveni reiterated his directive to the UPDF, emphasizing the need to establish communication with the captured women. He urged them to provide insights to the media regarding their association with the terrorists.

In the Kasese region, security forces, under the President’s guidance, are actively pursuing a group led by a Congolese individual named Kamusu. This group represents the remnants of Njovu’s faction, responsible for the tragic killing of tourists.

President Museveni underscored the enhancement of detection and search techniques, noting the apparent shift of terrorists away from the risky forests of Congo toward infiltrating back into Uganda in smaller groups. He asserted that the current mission is to identify and eliminate these smaller groups, whether within Uganda or in close proximity to Congo towns.
