The Uganda People’s Defence Forces has intercepted and killed three alleged Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels.
The commander of 8th Battalion, Lt Col Saul Nabimanya, yesterday revealed that the trio was killed on Sunday as they emerged from their hideout to go to and steal food and property from deserted homes.
He added that since December 13, when alleged ADF rebels raided Bweramule Sub-county in Ntoroko District, a total of 26 rebels have been killed while 15 others were captured and 21 guns recovered noting that the army has resolved to deploy more soldiers in each village to guard the people and their properties so that internally displaced persons can return to their homes.
The Ntoroko LC5 chairperson, Mr William Kasoro, said the district has registered a total of 8,000 internally displaced persons since December 13.
Mr Kasoro said those displaced are camped at Karugutu Health Centre IV, Kisenge Trading Centre, Rwebisengo Town Council headquarters, and Bweramule Health Centre III, among other areas.
