olice in Bugiri District are investigating circumstances under which two members of the Salaaf Muslim sect were on Friday lynched by residents of Nabigongo village in Buliidha Sub-county.

The regional police commander in Charge of Busoga East, Mr Moses Muluya, said the two men were part of a group of about 100 members who had returned to reconstruct a camp that residents had earlier attacked and destroyed, saying the centre was a recruitment base for ADF.

The residents had during the attack demolished a permanent house belonging to the leader of the camp, Mr Abdul Rashid Kalinge.During the melee, six people, including Mr Mansur Oduya, Mr Siraje Ikoba, Mr Sadat Mudanga, Mr Sadiq Musambadha, and Mr Juma Kabaale, were injured. Speaking to the Daily Monitor, Mr Kabaale denied links to ADF, saying they are being accused falsely.

Mr Muluya said police have recorded statements from either side and will soon establish the cause of the attack and the exact nature of the sect’s activities on the village.
