ADF suspect collapses to death while in detention
A suspect earlier arrested over links with the Allied Democratic Force – ADF – has collapsed to death in detention.
The deceased has been identified as Costa Muhonja, 80.
Well-placed sources say Muhonja fell in the bathroom while custody at Kireka detention facility.
Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says Muhonja was a suspected ADF collaborator, and that his remains claimed by his family on the 15.02.2023.
“A one Tindyebwa Ezra, who identified himself as his son. The UPF helped in the transportation of the body up to Kanyampara village in Kasese district and supported the burial arrangement with a coffin and food stuff,” Enanga said.
As we handed over the remains, Enanga added: “we warned the family and relatives against kinship recruitment, into terrorism where terrorists pay to recruit relatives of their operators, agents and collaborators, for continuity of their valued relationships.”
According to Enanga, “they dip into the family because trust is already established and the risk of recruiting the wrong people is minimized.”
“It is against this background that we have strongly warned the family and relatives.”
