Jinja Magistrates Court Wednesday charged Allied Democratic Front (ADF) leader, Jamil Mukulu, and two of his accomplices with murder.

Mukulu together with his two accomplices were extradited into the country after being arrested in Tanzania in April this year and locked up at Nalufenya police station in Jinja.

Mukulu and his accomplices, Abdalla Omar Mutuka and Mohammed Matovu, arrived amid tight security as is always the case with terrorists or treason suspects.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, had earlier announced that Mukulu would appear in Jinja Court for plea taking.

He said the rebel leader was charged for the murders of Sheikh Muwaya Dactoor, Namayingo LC 3 Chairman, Tito Okware, and the death of former IGG, Faith Mwonda’s bodyguards.

Police says it is also preparing files against Mukulu relating to Kampala bombings.

Journalists, as we have learnt, were locked out of the court session room.

Security claimed there was need to “protect judicial and security officers” who handled the matter.

Only photographers were allowed to take a few pictures while the rest were barred from even talking to court officials.
