Two men, including an accountant of Mpanda hospital called Amédé Niyorugira and Innocent Busoni, a businessman, were killed yesterday around 9p.m in Nyamabere locality in the western province of Bubanza.
According to Pierre Nkurikiye, the spokesperson of the Burundian police, armed men driving in “T.I” type vehicle shot them while returning home on a motorbike. The police tried to intervene but criminals had already run away.
‘Victims were just from a concert held by a Burundian artist living in Kenya nicknamed ‘Kidumu’ at Liani Bar about 7pm. On their way back, they were followed by these criminals who shot them with a handgun,” says Nkurikiye.
He explained that land-related conflicts would be behind that crime. Pierre Nkurikiye indicates that two people were arrested to help the police with their inquiries. On August 31, a moto-taxi driver was killed in the same locality by an armed man disguised himself as a passenger.
