The victim was Bapfakurera Théoneste, a Pastor at the Hope of Jesus Church whose church building had previously been closed for lack of requirements.
Muyumbu Sector Executive Secretary, Bahati Bonny, told IGIHE that security personnel and local authorities were alerted of the attack where culprits carried both real and toy guns. They left one of the toy guns at the scene of crime.
He said that the criminals’ aim was to take the life of Bapfakurera since they did not take with them any valuable from the victims. “It was just a plot to kill,” he said.
Bapfakurera’s body was taken to Kacyiru Hospital for examination as the hunt for the criminals gets underway.
