Police in Buvuma Island have arrested 10 religious leaders of the 666 religious sect for stopping believers from registering to get the National Identity Cards.
The area police spokesperson Lameck Kigozi told the press on Friday Morning that the police together with the Resident District Commissioner earlier held talks with these leaders of the 666 believers in Mwiriri village over discouraging people from getting the National Identity cards but all the advice fell on deaf ears.
They continued to convince believers that the numbers they are being given could be the number of the beast talked about in the Bible (Revelations 13:18).Police thus made an operation which ended with the arrest of 10 leaders of the sect.
Mr Lameck Kigozi says, the suspects who are currently being held at Buvuma Police Post are to be brought to court in Lugazi where they will be charged with disobeying a national order to register for National Identity cards.
