The AG100 motorcycle, RA 965N was stolen on October 8, from Munyangoga’s home in Nyamata Sector. It was recovered on October 14, in Rilima Sector.
The Police spokesperson for the Eastern region, Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) Hamdun Twizeyimana said that on the fateful evening, Munyangoga returned home and parked his motorcycle on the veranda.
Later that evening, he came out of the house only to find that his motorcycle was nowhere to be seen and he immediately called law enforcement agencies which commenced the search for the motorcycle and suspected thief.
“On October 10, Rilima Police station received a call at about 10pm from a local resident, who saw a motorcycle hidden in a banana plantation; apparently the suspected thief was looking for a buyer,” CIP Twizeyimana said.
“The suspect was selling the motorcycle at Rwf700, 000. Although he managed to flee the arrest that very night, we know him and law enforcement officers are working together to locate and bring him to justice,” the spokesperson added.
He thanked the resident, who was quick to provide information, which facilitated the recovery of the motorcycle and called for strengthened partnership and information sharing on anyone they suspect to be a wrongdoer.
Munyangoga, on his part, thanked the resident who helped the Police efforts to recover his motorcycle, and commended the impact of community policing in fighting and preventing crime.
