A joint operation conducted by Police and the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) has led to an arrest of five South Sudanese in Amuru district.

Police said the five suspects were found with a gun and 29 rounds of ammunition—deep in the sugar plantation of Horail sugar factory.

The arrested suspects include Joseph Lagu, Peter Wanek, Briton Ambuya, James Azo and a yet to be identified person.

The suspects, Enanga said, tried to threaten workers at the sugar factory, saying that part of the factory belongs to South Sudan.

They are currently being held at the UPDF fourth Division in Gulu district, as investigations commence.

“We are trying to establish if they have an attachment to the security agencies in South Sudan,” Enanga said, adding that once the investigations are done, they will be taken to the courts of law to be charged.
