Witnessess said that plain clothed operatives driving in a Police van arrived at Masjid Abubaker Sudiq located in Kiwatule, a Kampala suburb shortly after 8pm on Thursday night and started arresting everybody in and outside the mosque.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, told crime reporters that he had not been fully briefed about the operation and therefore could not reveal details.
“We are still gathering details of the operation; we cannot give you half-baked information,” said Mr Kayima.

On Tuesday, a combined team of police and officers from the Joint Anti-Terrorism Task Force (JATT) raided Nakasero Mosque on Plot 4 Snay bin Amin Street in Kampala and arrested at least 20 people.
Police sources say the arrested suspects are linked to the recent killings of Muslim clerics and other criminal activities.
The Inspector General of Police General Kale Kayihura said on Tuesday that those arrested from the Nakasero mosque have strong links to the recent murder of Moslem clericks including Maj Muhammad Kiggundu who was gunned down on November 26 at Masanafu Trading Centre in Rubaga Division, Kampala.
