Gulu-the police counter terrorism department has shifted its focus to scrap dealers after bomb squad teams identified ball bearings, nails and metals as some of the shrapnel used to make the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) that exploded in Kampala a week ago, killing seven people and injuring more than 30 others.
Stephen Kaija, the Acting Aswa River Region Police Commander (RPC) said they plan to meet the scrap dealers to discuss with them ways to fight terrorism.
Meanwhile Police in Aswa River Region are yet to begin implementing the Presidential directive on regulating the sale of fertilizers.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni while addressing the nation last week revealed that ammonium nitrate and petrol were the chemicals used in the manufacture of the two bombs that were exploded in Kampala leaving seven people dead.
He then tasked Police to begin regulating the sale of fertiliser.
According to David Ongom Mudong, the Aswa River Region Police spokesperson, they are yet to get clear guidelines on how to implement the directive.
