They were apprehended on 12th July 2023 through a joint operation between the Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) and the Rwanda National Police (RNP).
The RIB disclosed that the suspects were caught red-handed at the residence of one of the teachers, where they found a 21-year-old girl who had consumed drugs to induce an abortion. The student was immediately transferred to a hospital for medical attention.
Notably, one of the arrested teachers also held the position of prefect in charge of discipline at the school.
Dr. Murangira B Thierry, the spokesperson of RIB, expressed appreciation for individuals who provide information to combat such crimes.
"RIB would like to commend residents for their collaboration through sharing of information. This is an exemplary display of efforts to combat and prevent crimes. We encourage them to continue working together."
The suspects are currently detained at Ruhango RIB Post while investigations are ongoing.
