Security has arrested a suspected ADF agent who disguised as a lunatic but was found at 4:45am taking photos of Embassy bar and restaurant, a popular hangout in Jinja City.
According to police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, Nyanzi David Living Mwenze was arrested as he took pictures of the popular restaurant in the wee hours of the morning.
“He had disguised as a mad person putting on dirty clothes. What raised suspicion is that he had a smartphone he was using to take photographs. On arrest, he was found with cash in shs50,000, shs20,000 and shs10,000 notes. He also had two AK47 bullets, four simcards, eight street parking ticket receipts and a school receipt,” Enanga said.
He said after arrest, the suspect was subjected to a mental test by a psychiatrist that came out negative as the suspect was found to be of sound mind.
“Upon interrogation, he said he was a member in the ADF ranks. Efforts to trace other members are still on.”
In a related development, the police spokesperson said a Congolese national has been arrested in Nansana over suspicion to be a wrong element.
Enanga said the suspect was seen in a bar making frantic calls and on arrest, he said he was from Beni in DRC but didn’t have any identification document on him.
“He was handed over to crime intelligence for interrogation. There are still sleeper cells in country for ADF and are trying to identify soft targets.”
Enanga said operations targeting ADF sleeper cells are still ongoing throughout the country.
The development comes a week after two explosives went off in Kampala and Wakiso.
