The Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC) have confirmed they seized Ignace Nkaka aka Le Forge Fils Bazeye, the Spokesperson of FDLR- FOCA during yesterday’s clashes at Rugari.
The fighting took place near the township of Kibumba about 30Kms away from Goma city, North Kivu Province in the eastern region of the mineral-rich African country, military sources confirmed.
The arrest of Nkaka was confirmed by the government of Rwanda.
This man is called Le Forge Fils Bazeye. It's not a French aristocrat but the spokesperson of the
#FDLR, a génocidaire and subversive movement operating in Eastern #DRC. He was arrested today by the Congolese army (FARDC). I hope that he will be repatriated to Rwanda #Rwanda,” twitted Amb. Olivier Nduhungirehe, the Minister for the East African Community Affairs.
The Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) is a militia group largely formed by remnants of the former genocide army (Ex-FAR), which is loyal to the Ex-President, Juvenal Habyarimana.
FDLR and many marauding militia groups are responsible for the deaths of millions of people and displacement of thousands in the vast war ravaged nation. They crossed to DRC, the former Zaire after commiting the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. More than one million Tutsis died during the genocide.
