Security sources revealed that the two could have been on a mission to take photos of the facility and send them to those that would want to rescue Mukulu and his men.

Fred Enanga the police spokesperson confirmed the arrest of the two and said that police is scrutinizing their gadgets.
“We are interested in knowing their motivation of taking photos of this highly protected place and to know the people they work with.”
