Brig Gen. Felix Kulayigye, the UPDF spokesperson announced on Wednesday that intelligence units of UPDF discovered an ADF training camp in Luweero believed to have been the main supplier of trainees and rebels to the notorious rebel group that is responsible for destabilizing the peace of Uganda and neighbouring DRC.

“ADF training camp discovered in Luwero. The media is invited to come tomorrow 16 June 2022 and see for themselves. Transport is available at the Media centre at 10 am,“ Gen. Kulayigye announced on Wednesday.

Brig Gen. Felix Kulayigye, the UPDF spokesperson addresses the media about the ADF training camp discovered in Luwero on Thursday.

During the media briefing on Thursday, Kulayigye explained that a team of UPDF officers raided the ADF training and recruitment camp in the compound owned by Kabonge Umar Ajobe located in Kikubajinja Town council in Luwero district. 

Police cordon the home of a man suspected to be coordinating ADF activities in Luwero.

He added that the house has a welding shop at the front which is used to disguise the sound of bullets firing and an underground trench or cave that is 13ft deep and 9.5’9 inches wide which was used to train other assailants how to shoot. 

Brig Gen. Felix Kulayigye, the UPDF spokesperson shows the media the house that was raided on suspicions of being used for coordinating ADF activities in Luwero.

According to security sources in Luwero, Kabonge has lived in Kikubajinja for 12 years and has had a close relationship with Hajji Walugembe Umar who is a suspected ADF spy. 

It is reported that Hajji Walugembe Umar is a deputy principle of Hamza Islamic School and is believed to have a hand in the recruitment of ADF combatants in Luwero district.

Kabonge is reported to be an ADF operative born in Nakaseke district who is currently being held by security for the attempted assassination of Gen Katumba Wamala, the minister of works and transport on June 1st 2021.

The security have also discovered that it is in this house that the same cell trained and planned the assassination of Gen Katumba Wamala and foiled bombing attempt at the late Lt Gen Paul Lokech’s funeral on August 27th 2021.

Security also discovered bomb making equipment, firing pins, bullets and gun oil among others at the house.

The UPDF and other security agencies are working together with the Media to uncover other cells and training grounds of the rebel group which they suspect has bases in Gulu and Arua districts.

The ADF group is affiliated with ISIS and first emerged in Western Uganda, and is currently known for killing, kidnapping, and displacing Christians in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The terrorist group also claims to have conducted the four bomb attacks in Uganda’s capital of Kampala in 2021.
