While addressing the students, AIP Nshimiyumukiza urged them to focus on their education and be of value to their communities and the country in general by reporting anyone they suspect of engaging in criminal activities.
He also tutored them on global emerging threats of terrorism, human trafficking and appealed to them to fighting poaching by allying with police and reporting those involved.
