A number of South Sudanese students at Gulu Central High School in Gulu City were probed by Intelligence following allegations of firearms within the school premises.
Some South Sudanese students at the school have been seen with guns and live ammunition on school grounds and in their dorms, which has made some parents worried.
They were also accused of being violent and threatening their Ugandan counterparts.
Dr. David Onen owns the Gulu Central High School, which is in the Pece-Laroo division and has at least 300 South Sudanese students.
After hearing about the worries, a senior intelligence officer in Gulu City who didn’t want to give his name said that they moved quickly to find out what was going on with the rumors.
The source told a security meeting on Wednesday in Gulu that they discovered that the claim originated from the school watchman, but it was found not to be true.
During the same meeting, Lamex Akena, the Deputy Mayor of Gulu City, said that South Sudanese people who live in Uganda should have their lifestyles checked because some of them are security risks.
