Rwanda National Police are holding seven individuals linked to armed groups operating from a neighbouring country.

According to a Police statement the three of the suspects are young recruits  that were intercepted en- route to military training outside Rwanda.

Police says that recruitment has been going on for some time.

The three suspects revealed details which prompted a search that led to the arrest of four suspected recruiters in the Western Province and in Kigali City.

“We have been investigating this case for the last one month,” ACP Theos Badege, the Police Spokesperson told KT Press.

“According to the law, we will have to forward their case to prosecution within five working days.”

Police said material evidence, details of which the police said will be revealed by prosecution in court, was also recovered from the search.

KT Press has learnt that the suspects being held are Boniface Twagirimana, Fabien Twagirayezu, Gratien Nsabiyaremye, Leonille Gasengayire, Ufitamahoro Norbert, Twagirayezu Janvier and Nshimiye Papias. The seven suspects have been informed of their rights to legal representation under the law.
