Suspects on a Police Patrol vehicle

The detectives are interrogating the suspects and have promised to brief the press later.

Six other suspects were arrested on Tuesday in Kampala. One of them was nabbed from a hostel near Makerere University.

Uganda Police is in receipt of ?credible? intelligence information that the Somali based Al-Shabaab militant group is planning imminent attacks on schools, colleges and universities on Jinja-Kampala highway.

The terror alert comes on the heels of a massacre of 147 students at Garissa University College in Kenya by the same group.

According to Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura, the terror threat posed by Al-Shabaab is real as Ugandans prepare to enjoy their Easter holiday. He has called for increased vigilance by members of the public to augment the already enhanced security deployment.

?We have credible information that Al-Shabaab intends to attack schools, colleges and universities along Jinja-Kampala highway. This calls for increased vigilance by everyone if we are to remain on top of the situation,? Kayihura said.
