Yesterday evening police released 14 Muslims out of the 18 who were arrested during the Nakasero mosque raid last month by the Joint Anti- Terrorism Task Force.

According to the Tabliq Muslim Sect Siraje Kifampa, 14 Muslims were released on a police bond and the remaining four have charges to answer before Court.

The suspects who were transferred from Nalufenya Police Station in Jinja District to Kampala Central Police Station were released by Police Flying Squad Unit which led the raid.

Those who were released include: Ayub Nyende, Abdul Mu’umin, Umar Kamoga, Ismail Kasibante, Musa Semanda, Juma Kavuma and Hamis Kabwama.

Others are: Ashraf Mawanda, Muhammad Senyonga, Muzamiru Ssekamatte, Abdu Abdallah Isabirye, Hassan Twaha, Shafiq Sebandeke, Abdallah Lubega.

On the other hand, the Inspector General of Police( IGP), Gen. Kale Kayihura on Thursday paid a visit to Uganda Muslim Supreme Council headquarters at Old Kampala and apologized for the irrelevant raids the police made on Nakasero and Kiwatule mosques.

During talks with officials from UMSC, Kayihura said those who carried out the raids acted in an unprofessional manner but it was not intended.
