The bomb could have been abandoned during insurgency in Teso region, and was recovered following a tip-off from the community, according to the UPDF. Maj. Omagor says Operation Restore Hope that was introduced in Teso in 2008 to recover illegal ammunition did a good job, but there could still be some weapons left.
Last month, the army recovered a 160 millimeter mortar bomb at Amejeit village, Kapir sub-county in Ngora district.
