The Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) has said that it has arrested terror suspect Paul Rusesabagina.
He is suspected to be the founder, leader, sponsor and member of terror outfits including MRCD and PDR-Ihumure, operating out of various places in the region and abroad.
Rusesabagina, who RIB says was arrested through ‘international cooperation’ is being held at the Remera Police Station while his case file is being processed in accordance with Rwandan criminal procedure.
Through their Twitter handle, RIB says that until his arrest, Rusesabagina was subject of an International Arrest Warrant, wanted for alleged terrorism, arson, kidnap and murder, perpetrated against civilians on Rwandan territory.
The 66-year-old is accused of being behind several attacks including one in Nyabimata – Nyaruguru District in June 2018 and in Nyungwe – Nyamagabe District in December 2018.
