Kisokeranio was reportedly in charge of intelligence, finances, and supplies within the ADF rebel movement.

One of the notorious leaders of the Ugandan rebel group, Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) movement, operating in eastern DR Congo has been arrested by the Congolese national army, FARDC.

Benjamin Kisokeranio was arrested on Tuesday, Jan.11, in Uvira at the Kavinvira border post.

According to Maj. Dieudonne Kasereka, spokesperson of the FARDC in South Kivu, Kisokeranio was in charge of intelligence, finances, and supplies within the ADF rebel movement.

“He was going around using a fake passport in the name of Kasereka Kilalo Jimmy. He usually carries around locally-made bombs which have been causing havoc in the town of Beni,” the army spokesperson said.
