Just a day after Police intercepted a drug dealer in Nyamagabe District with 13kgs of cannabis, two other suppliers were arrested in Nyarugenge District on Saturday, October 8, with 30kgs of cannabis.

The duo of Jean Claude Bigabiro, 38, and Bertin Nditurende, 39, was intercepted at Cercle Sportif in Kiyovu, Nyarugenge Sector.

They were transporting a sack of narcotics on a motorcycle TVS, registration number RC 180X, which was also impounded.

Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) Sylvestre Twajamahoro, the Police spokesperson for the City of Kigali, said that Nditurende is the alleged rightful owner of the narcotics while Bigabiro is a taxi-moto operator suspected of working with drug dealers to transport them and their narcotics.

"A responsive person called the Police reporting two people traveling on the same motorcycle with a luggage, which he suspected to be cannabis. The duo was intercepted and arrested at Cercle sportif after they were found in possession of cannabis packed in a sack of cement, weighing 30kgs," CIP Twajamahoro said.

Law enforcement organs are still searching for two other people, who allegedly transported the narcotics from Rubavu, met Bigabiro and Nditurende in Nzove, Kanyinya Sector of Nyarugenge District.

There is also another member of the ring still at large, whom the arrested duo was at the time going to supply in Remera Sector, Gasabo District.
