We have received credible intelligence that Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) terrorist cells within the Central and Eastern regions are planning to carry out arson attacks on schools.
This is to alert all school administration and the entire public to be extra vigilant and report any suspicious person and activities in their vicinity to the nearest Police.We are calling upon the school administration to, urgently put the following measures in place:
- Access control at the school: There should be capable guards (who are alert, 24/7) at gates or all entry points to check everybody accessing the premises. Secondly, there should be Metal detectors, at all entrance points to detect possible intrusion of explosive materials e.g. bombs. Thirdly, security lights, alarms, etc, should, if they have not been placed along non-porous perimeter fences, be installed.
- Educational institutions should implement the basic standards for safety and security provided to them by the Ministry of Education.
We wish to assure the public that Uganda Police and its sisters’ security agencies are determined and committed to ensure that law, order, peace and security prevails in all parts of the country.
