BUSHENYI: Police in Greater Bushenyi and Sheema District have taken into custody two senior one students of St. Charles Lwanga High School for issuing an anonymous terroristic threat of attack by the ADF against their school.
The Uganda Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, identified the suspects as Mwesigye Innocent and Ayebare Benon.
According to Enanga, the facts gathered indicate that on July 5, 2023, the school leadership came across an anonymous letter with threats of a terror attack on St. Charles Lwanga High School and two other schools in Kasese (St. Andrews Primary School and Kibingo Primary School), which was dropped at the entrance of one of the classrooms.
The police mouthpiece asserts that after a thorough investigation in coordination with the school, it was established that the anonymous letter was written by Mwesigye Innocent, aged 16 and a senior one “C” student, assisted by his classmate Ayebare Amon, aged 17 and a senior one “A.”.
‘’They claimed they wanted to scare the school administration for having punished them after the dormitory captain reported them for indiscipline,’’ Enanga said.
Enanga says that both students admitted to having authored the anonymous letter, adding that a task team also recovered an exercise book, where they plucked a page that will be subjected, together with their specimen handwritings, to the handwriting expert for analysis.
He therefore warned students that making threats of violence, attack, or use of firearms is not a joke but a criminal act, adding that the two students will be arraigned in court for threatening violence and probably remanded to juvenile detention centers.
