He was made to falsely confess that he was part of the Kampala bombings on the 11th July 2010 and was coerced to state this otherwise he would face torture, be killed and his friends and relatives including his pregnant wife, also detained, would not be released but face the same treatment.
These false confessions made under extreme and severe duress were then used by Ndungutse Ngaruye John as the basis of the charges brought against Ali Mohamed in Uganda and also the request made by Uganda for his extradition. Nothing was mention in this prolonged interrogation about murder or attempted murder, which were later added by Ugandan police office Ndungutse Ngaruye John.
