Six people have been arrested in an operation targeting houses in Kyengera, suspected to be hosting terrorists.
The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura said the arrested individuals include four men and two women linked to the shooting of Joan Kagezi, the State Prosecutor who was killed last week in Kiwatule, a Kampala suburb.
At the time of her tragic death, Kagezi was the lead prosecutor in the trial of suspects linked to the July 2010 suicide bombings at Kyadondo rugby grounds and the Ethiopian restaurant in Kampala.
Kayihura said the group was tracked from Kiwatule where its members shifted from, to another undisclosed location before ending up in Kyengera.
A Uganda Radio Network reporter at the scene says about six officer’s cordoned one house in an operation which began at 9am, Tuesday morning.
It also covered a number of houses in the suburb along the Kampala-Masaka highway.
The development comes two days after a man suspected to have links with Al-Shabab, the Somali-based terrorist group, was arrested at a hostel near Makerere University Business School in Kampala.
The suspect is in police custody.
Police last week issued a terror alert for schools and educational institutions along the Kampala-Jinja highway.
The alert followed an attack on Garrisa University College, in Eastern Kenya, that left 147 students dead.
