UPDF places shs20m bounty on ADF terrorist Habib’s head


Kampala | A few hours after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni briefed the country through his official X handle about the security situation and UPDF pursuits of ADF terrorists in DRC, the UPDF has placed a huge bounty. 

In a statement on Sunday, December 3, the Deputy Defence Spokesperson, Col. Deo Akiiki put out a photo of wanted ADF terrorists.

According to Akiiki, one of the wanted ADF terrorists is Habib Suleiman aka Kijana.

Habib was sent to plant bombs around, he reveals.

“If seen, arrest or call nearest security agency. 20m bounty available on his head,” Col. Deo Akiiki adds.

Below is what President Museveni said earlier

Fellow Ugandans and, especially, the Bazzukulu.


We are intensifying the hunt for the pigs in Congo. In the last week, we carried out seven attacks with our different air-platforms and one attack by medium range artillery. The attacks were devastating for the terrorists.

In desperation, they have been sending small groups of infiltrators like the group of Njovu that killed the tourists. Njovu was injured and arrested and three of his group were killed. About 7 of his group escaped and the security forces are hunting them in the Kibaale National Park area. That group is led by Kamusu, a Congolese. Their other leader in Congo is Abu Waqas, an Arab from Tanzania. His camp is one of those that were attacked by our forces.

The other infiltrators, in collusion with some individuals within the country, tried to plant bombs in Kikuba-mutwe, Kabalagala area and Nabweru 2 cell. However, due to the vigilance of the Wanainchi and the security forces, the two bombs went off without harming anybody.

They had planted one of the bombs near a Pork “joint”. Bazzukulu, what is a joint? I take it to mean a selling point or centre. In Runyankore, we would say: “akarabo k’empunu”. Ekirabo means an Eating House. Empunu are pigs. It could also mean a bar.

The six air-attacks were at kms 64 and 65 from the border. The one that was attacked by gun-ships was 3kms from the border. Up-rooting the Lumbugu from Congo is progressing well.

I thank H.E Tshisekedi for allowing us to deal with the Lumbugu (couch grass).

People in churches, markets, mosques, bars, etc. be vigilant and look out for strangers. The hotels and markets should have their own security as we had planned before. Maintain the vigilance until we finish up-rooting the Lumbugu in Congo.
