A man identified as Adam Kilalira, a resident of Makerere Kikoni zone in Kampala has been arrested for extorting money from relatives of Muslim leaders who were arrested in Luwero District last month.

The group of seven was arrested on June 23, by policemen and soldiers of Uganda People’s Defense Forces -UPDF who raided Walusi Hill at Kireku village in Luwero district and evicted 70 new Muslim converts who were found in a cave, tents and huts that had become their base.

They include Isah Kisinja who had lived on the hill for close to 13 years, alongside six others later identified as Muwada Kyambadde, Abdul-Rahman Mudde, Mubarak Lubuulwa, Shafik Kazibwe and Masturah Nakyeyune.

They were accused of radicalizing the followers and detained them at Luwero Central Police Station, from where they were released on Police Bond last evening. Luwero District Police Commander Living Twazagye says that investigations into the matter are ongoing.

But Twazagye explains that while the seven remained in Police Custody, Kilalira approached their relatives and asked them for two million Shillings to help them secure a police bond. But he was given 600,000 Shillings which was paid through mobile money and was still demanding for the balance of 1.4 million Shillings, by the time he was arrested.
