Police has received credible information indicating that wanted terrorist Andreas Martin Mueller alias Ahmed Khaled, is said to have entered the country on Tuesday.
Mueller, who is of German origin, sparked a massive manhunt in May 2012 when alongside Emrah Erdogan alias Imraan AL-Kurdy alias Salahaddin AL-Kurdy sneaked into the country via Kenya.
The duo was at the time described as foreign fighters boosting the Somalia based al-Shabaab terror group, responsible for the 2010 twin terror attacks in Kampala.
According to a police statement signed by Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura, Mueller on Tuesday entered the country from Limulu, Kenya and travelled to Kampala aboard a Kaliita Bus, Reg. NO. KBF 057N.
“We need to remind the public that this terrorist, Mueller alias Ahmed Khaled, was given wide publicity when, last year, in January 2012 he, together with another terrorist, Erdogan were reported to be in Uganda” the statement read.
“As the Police, together with sister security agencies, hunt down this individual, we again call upon the public to take our terror alerts seriously.”
Almost a fortnight ago in the wake Westgate mall attack in Kenya, police issued several terror alerts and bolstered security around the country.
