The army court in Kampala has remanded Boda boda 2010 patron, Abdallah Kitatta and 11 others to Luzira Prison after they were charged with unlawful possession of firearms.
Mr Kitatta and his co-accused persons, all members of the infamous Boda boda 2010 were on Tuesday charged at the Makindye based General Court Martial amid tight security before they were remanded until March 27.
Other suspects are Sowali Ngobi, Amon Twinomujuni, Joel Kibirige, Matia Ssenfuka, Hassan Ssebata, Johnson Kayondo, Hassan Ssengoba, Sunday Ssemogerere, John Ssebandeke, Hussein Mugema, Fred Bwanika and Ibrahim Ssekaja.

Mr Kitatta was arrested on January 20, a day after CMI apprehended his young brother Huzairu Kiwalabye in connection with the kidnap and killing of Case Hospital accountant, Francis Ekalungar.
Ekalungar was kidnapped on January 2 as he took the hospital’s money worth Shs15m to the bank. His charred body was discovered a day later at Kajjansi.
CMI took over investigation into Ekalungar’s gruesome murder after police detectives claimed they were stuck with case since it involved Boda boda 2010, a group loyal to the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura.
