(Worthy News) — Claiming that this was the way to serve Allah during the month of Ramadan, Islamic jihadists in western Uganda set off a fuel bomb on the premises of a Pentecostal church during a Good Friday service on April 7, Morning Star News (MSN) reported on April 17. Christianity is legal in Uganda, although believers have come under increasing violent attack from radicalized Muslims.

The Good Friday bomb was detonated at the NABI Pentecostal church in Biguli, Kamwenge District, MSN reported. No one was hurt in the blast, although part of the church building, a car, and several motorcycles were damaged.

Church security members were able to apprehend one of six suspects, a man called Bwambale Sadadi of Kilembe quarters, and hand him over to police, a local resident whose identity is withheld for security reasons told MSN.

“The police interrogated Bwambale, 28, who confessed that he carried out a jihad activity for jannah [paradise] in this holy month of Ramadan as a way of serving Allah and that he will reward him in paradise,” the resident said.

“While members were praying, there was a loud explosion of fire that caught part of the front church with the petrol explosion while the faithful were conducting a night prayer meeting,” the resident said. “Bwambale was caught by security personnel who contacted the police, who responded immediately and arrested him.” Police were understood to have been investigating the matter and searching for the remaining five suspects.
were continuing to investigate as they sought the five other suspects.

“The assault was the latest of many instances of persecution of Christians in Uganda that Morning Star News has documented,” MSN said in its report.
