Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) has arrested four people from Ruhango district over suspected murder of a woman, Agnes Nyiramana whose body was found dumped in a latrine. Nyiramana’s father-in-law and brother-in-law are among the suspects.

Local leaders and security officials found the body yesterday dumped in the toilet belonging to the family of a man who recently cohabited with Nyiramana in Ruhango sector.

Nyiramana was reported missing last week. At the time, residents claimed that the cohabiting man might know the truth about her disappearance.

Local leaders and security officials mounted a search until they found the body yesterday in toilet.

The spokesperson of RIB, Dr Murangira B. Thierry has told IGIHE that four people have been arrested in connection with the murder.

He explained that the suspects include a 40 year old man who cohabited with Nyiramana and his 35 year old friend.

Dr Murangira said the two suspects explained that they committed the murder on the order of a 70 year-old-father in law and brother-in-law.

“The four suspects are pinned for murder of Nyiramana Agnes, 37, and dumping her body in toilet. They explained, the woman was murdered for reporting her husband who trafficked drugs leading to his detention,” he said.

RIB appealed on Rwandans to distance themselves from such heinous crimes that whoever caught will be held accountable.

The four suspects are detained at RIB Station in Ruhango district. Their case is to be filed and transferred to the prosecution.
