Police in Kicukiro District in Kamashashi Cell, Nyarugunga Sector have arrested a man who has been extorting money from employees of the telecommunications service provider for days.

Protestestere Twitegure, 31-year-old was arrested after a search operation started based on information provided by the telecommunications company.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Burahinda Ntacyo, the District Police Commander (DPC) for Kicukiro, said that Twitegure was fraudulently withdrawing money from people’s mobile accounts.

He had been doing this for days, the closure of the line prompted employees to question the telecommunications center and tell them that the person who is withdrawing the money he stole it and he is wanted.

SSP Burahinda says the man had allegedly fraudulently transferred Rwf800, 000 from someone’s mobile account to different other accounts including those registered in his name.
"The telecom banking agent, where he made the last withdrawal of Rwf100, 000 was also vigilant. After completing the transaction, the agent saw Twitegure with many SIM Cards, interchanging them in his phone and disposing of others.”

With the help of people, they contained Twitegure, called, and handed him over to the Police in Nyarugunga.

Saving and sending money service providers are required to pay attention to those whom they provide such services as there are thieves.
