The president of National Unity Platform (NUP) Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine has criticised security organs over continued extral-judicial execution of alleged terror suspects.

Hon Kyagulanyi’s statement followed up the killing of Sheikh Abas Muhammed popularly known as Sheikh Kirevu who is suspected to be behind the Kampala Twin bombings recently.

“While all of us understand the importance of keeping our country safe and holding accountable those who harm innocent citizens, I am deeply concerned about the continued extra-judicial execution of alleged terror suspects,” says Mr Kyagulanyi.

“It has become the norm for security agencies led by the police force to shoot dead suspects and later claim that they were resisting lawful arrest. This has gone on for far too long,” he added.

The recent killings started with suspects in the attack on Gen. Katumba Wamala, and has stretched all the way to the latest victim — Sheikh Abas Muhammed alias Sheikh Kirevu — who was “put out of action” yesterday in Nsangi as security spokespeople told the country.

Sheikh Kirevu was allegedly connected to Tuesday’s terror attacks in the city, and was purportedly recruiting for the ADF in Ntoroko District.

“It is unfortunate that most of the victims are Muslims, thanks to an unfortunate stereotype the State has created about our brothers and sisters who profess the Islamic religion,” Mr Wine explained.

“Our Constitution which guarantees the right of every suspect to due process, no matter the gravity of their alleged offence, must be upheld at all costs and in all circumstances. Shooting dead suspects in offenses of this nature without subjecting them to the legal process simply creates suspicion in the eyes of ordinary citizens about the regime’s complicity in the crimes,” he stated.

President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni, on different occasions has promised citizens to crush terrorists to maintain peace in the country.
