Court heard that while in various places in Uganda, with intents to intimidate the public for political, religious, social, or economic gains, the suspects indiscriminately involved themselves in murder and attempted murder of people.
The four are Sheikh Abaasi Nseera, the Imam of Masaka main mosque, his assistants Hakim Nseera and Farouk Mulumba, and Moses Tamale an ordinary worshiper. They were remanded to Sazza Government prisons on Thursday, on the basis of offences that were committed during a scuffle at Masaka main mosque in May, this year.
Abaasi Nseera, together with Hakim Nseera, Farouk Mulumba and Musa Tamale appeared before Masaka grade one magistrate Grace Wakooli, and charged with threatening violence and inflicting bodily injuries on two members of the Muslim community in Masaka. The offences were allegedly committed on May 26, this year.
The Masaka Grade One Magistrate Author Zirabamuzale was forced to adjourn the case to February next year after the state prosecutor Jacob Nahurira told the court that the witnesses had not appeared in court.
