Six local night patrol men [Abanyerondo] in Rugobagoba village, Kigembe cell , Gacurabwenge sector in Kamonyi district have been put under police custody on account of beating and injuring a resident identified as Nkurikiyimana Enoch.

Nzayisenga Yenos who tipped off the concerned officials through his twitter account has told IGIHE that foot patrol members on 14th December 2020 went to the home of Nkurikiyimana accusing him of abusing a woman in the area.

Upon arrival at Nkurikiyimana’s home around 9pm, patrol agents knocked at the door, beat and injured the him as he got out.

One month after Nkurukiyimana went for medical attention and reported the brutality to Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB) with no stern action taken against the culprits, Nzayisenga decided to call for action using his Twitter handle.

Following the tweet, Kamonyi district officials and Rwanda National Police took action and gave a reply to the effect that the six suspects have been arrested and handed to RIB.

“They are suspected of beating and causing head injuries to Nkurikiyimana Enoch,” reads a tweet by Police.

Police explained, the suspects are detained at Gacurabwenge Police Station as investigations get underway.
