Joint security forces have raised to shs 20 million the bounty for information leading to the arrest Sheikh Abu Ubaida Badir Diin Bukenya, who is suspected to be the coordinator of domestic terror cells in the country.
Bukenya is alleged to have coordinated the assassination attempt of Works and Transport Minister Gen Edward Katumba Wamala which left him wounded and his daughter Brenda Nantogo and driver Haruna Kayondo dead.
Bukenya is also accused of coordinating several murders of high profiled government officials and aggravated robberies in the country.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga says the cash reward has been increased from shs 5 million to act as an incentive to anyone with credible information that can lead to Bukenya’s arrest.
Police have since revealed that the second suspect behind the General’s attack has been arrested.
