The Inspector General of Police Emmanuel K. Gasana, while presiding over the official closing two-week specialised counter terrorism training exercise has revealed there were failed attempts by some terror groups like FDLR and RNC to destabilize Rwanda about five years ago.
IGP Emmanuel Gasana said that terrorism is a global security threat that requires readiness, capacity and capabilities to deter “evil plans” by “terror groups.”
“There were failed attempts by some terror groups like FDLR and RNC to destabilize our country about five years ago,” said IGP Gasana.
However, we need to note that the region remains fragile to terrorism, which calls for continuous training and developing modern methods of dealing with terror to detect and deter such evil plans,” he added
“It is a deliberate plan for every police officer to acquire such anti-terror and public order management skills” he complimented
The Police Chief challenged participants to make use of the acquired knowledge and skills such as Command post set up, interoperability in counter terrorism operations, First aid and Voice procedures whenever need arises.
The training named ‘Crackdown’ ended on Saturday with 125 trainees from different units of Rwanda National Police.
