The territorial Police in Greater Bushenyi and Sheema District, has in custody, two senior one students of St Charles Lwanga High school for issuing an anonymous terroristic threat of attack by ADF against his school.

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says the suspect identified as Mwesigye Innocent is in Police custody for threatening violence together with his accomplice Ayebare Benon. The facts gathered indicate that on the 5.07.2023, the school leadership came across an anonymous letter, with threats of a terror attack, on St Charles Lwanga High school and two other schools in Kasese (St Andrews primary school and Kibingo primary school), which was dropped at the entrance of one of the classrooms.

After a thorough investigation in coordination with the school it was established that the anonymous letter was written by Mwesigye Innocent, aged 16 and a senior one “c” student, assisted by his classmate Ayebare Amon aged 17 and in senior one “A”. They claimed they wanted to scare the school administration for having punished them after the dormitory captain reported them for indiscipline.

”Both students admitted to having authored the anonymous letter. A task team also recovered an exercise book, where they plucked a page. It will be subjected, together with their specimen handwriting, to the handwriting expert for analysis,” says Enanga.

He adds, ”We would like to warn students that making threats of violence or attack or use of firearms is not a joke, but a criminal act. The two students will be arraigned in court for threatening violence and probably remanded to juvenile detention centre. ”School safety continues to be a priority of the Police and sister security agencies. We would like to applaud the territorial teams in Greater Bushenyi and Sheema for having conducted a thorough investigation.” an accessible web community
