"Police … received information from very credible sources that a wanted terrorist of German origin, Mueller alias Ahmed Khaled, entered the country yesterday [Tuesday], the police said in a statement to the media on Wednesday.

"As the Police, together with sister security agencies, hunt down this individual, we again call upon the public to take our terror alerts seriously...’’’

On Thursday management of the bus company suspected to have been used by the terrorist were questioned by police. The bus company denied aiding any acts of terrorism.

Last year the Uganda police issued a similar terror threat on Mueller alias Ahmed Khaled and another suspected terrorist only identified as Erogon. Elgon is said have been arrested in Tanzania after sneaking out of Uganda.

The Uganda police has circulated a picture of Mueller alias Ahmed Khaled with a call on members of the public to report to the police if they see someone with features resembling that of the German.

After the recent Westgate terror attack in Kenya, Uganda security agencies say they have been on an alert to avoid such attacks from taking place in Uganda.

Uganda like Kenya has forces in Somalia under the an African Union mission. Al-Shabaab said they attacked Kenya for the alleged killings carried out by Kenyan forces in Somalia.

In 2010, Al-Shabaab claimed carrying out a twin attack in Ugandan capital Kampala which killed 74 people and injured many more.
