Security sources on Wednesday disclosed that soldiers deployed in 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.
According to a report by Vanguard newspaper, the sources wondered why it was 24 hours after troop’s who had come to understand the vicinity were withdrawn and new ones who had yet to settle in arrived that the terrorists struck.
However, Vanguard was told that the period that the soldiers were supposed to stay in that deployment had elapsed and they were due for rotation.
Meanwhile, security sources have informed Vanguard 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. (Vanguard)
