Chief of Defence Forces General Edward Katumba Wamala has urged the public to take the recent police terror alert seriously.

Gen. Katumba Wamula says the Police gathers credible intelligence before issuing any alert.

He added that the public must not ignore any terror alert because Uganda is still a target of the Al-shabab militants due to the UPDF 's presence in Somalia.
