Police has arrested four suspected terrorists in Kasese district.
The suspects were intercepted at Nyakasanga, along the Kasese-Fort Portal road.
They were traveling in a Land Cruiser with Kenyan registered number plates KAS 777R.
Bakari Muga, the Rwenzori Regional Police Spokesperson confirmed the arrest in a phone interview with Uganda Radio Network.
Muga says that the four suspects, whose identities are concealed, were arrested on a directive from Police headquarters in Kampala.
“The directive showed that the vehicle was transporting wrong people,” Muga said.
The suspects are now held at Kasese Central Police Station pending their transfer to Kampala.
The arrest of the four suspects follows a terror alert issued by the police.
It also comes in the wake of the death of 147 students during an attack at Garissa University College in Kenya.
