The chilling events unfolded at 4 o’clock in the night when a passenger hired the deceased, Eric Dushimimana. Upon reaching Mburamazi road, another passenger joined, forming a sinister collaboration. As they reached a secluded street, the assailants attacked, stabbing Dushimimana immediately.
Despite a valiant struggle, the victim couldn’t hold on. His desperate cries for help echoed in the night, but the criminals overpowered him, stealing his phone and motorcycle documents. Villagers, alerted by the screams, rushed to the scene only to find Dushimimana’s lifeless body. The killers fled, pushing the stolen motorcycle.
Not long after, one of the criminals was apprehended in the village of Mibilizi, Kagamizi cell, Gashonga Sector. The suspect was caught with the deceased’s motorcycle logbook and bloodied clothes and provided information that led to the arrest of his colleague.
The Executive Secretary of Nyakarenzo Sector, Jean Pierre Ntawizera confirmed that the two suspects are now in custody at the RIB Station in Nyakarenzo.
Expressing his concern, Ntawizera urged people to refrain from seeking unearned wealth and emphasized the need for motorcyclists to exercise caution, particularly regarding passengers and avoiding forested areas during the night.
The incident serves as a tragic reminder of the dangers faced by those who traverse isolated roads, calling for increased vigilance and community awareness.
