Soldiers securing Kuje Prison were removed 24hrs before attack – Sources

Security Sources who spoke under the condition of anonymity on Wednesday revealed that soldiers deployed to Kuje vicinity and the Correctional Center’s enviroment, who had mastered the terrain and acclamitised, were moved out and redeployed 24 hours before terrorists attacked Kuje Prison.

The source asked why it is 24 hours after troop’s who had come to understand the vicinity were withdrawn and new ones who were yet to settle in arrived that the terrorists struck.

The source added that the period the soldiers were supposed to stay in that deployment had elapsed and they were due for rotation.

It was gathered that the terrorists were able to beat checkpoints mounted by security agencies through the use of motorcycles.

One source said that when the terrorists wanted to commence the operation, they opened volleys of bullets sporadically which made many residents take to their heels thus clearing the way for the terrorists to operate.
