One of the huge crocodiles that have terrorizing residents along Nyabarongo Mageregere Sector was killed on Thursday, August 24th.
A report from the security agencies in charge of hunting such wild animals and trapping them has killed one of the huge reptiles that have attacked residents who fetch water at banks of Nyabarongo.
In July this year, IGIHE reported a 54-year old woman who was killed by one of the crocodiles at 6:30 on a Sunday as she fetched water from Nyabarongo River.
The deceased was identified as Sperata Nyirampakaniye, a resident of Mageragere Sector, Kavuma Cell, Nyarugenge District and Kamonyi districts, respectively.
Residents in the area near the banks of River Nyabarongo have since expressed concerns over increasing attacks by crocodiles from the water body, saying that the reptiles have increasingly become aggressive.
Police are yet to release a statement about the hunt for the crocodiles.
