Rwanda National Police is still investigating to identify individuals who beat to death a one Niyonzima Salomon, resident of Rubavu district, whose violation acts went viral in a graphic video on social media platforms in Rwanda, showing the victim held by two men while another was beating him with a stick.

The 27-year old victim was seen being violently beaten by unidentified individuals on allegations that he had stolen a cluster of plantain.

He unfortunately succumbed to injuries on March 29th, 2020 at Gisenyi Hospital where he was being treated.

Commissioner of Police (CP) John Bosco Kabera has confirmed that investigations are underway.

Police announced they have apprehended two suspects, Niyonzima Jean Baptiste and Bitwayiki Jean Bosco but their accomplices, Bipfakubaho François and Nshimiye are still on the run.

CP Kabera said that three suspects are on the run including the plantation owner where the victim was assaulted.

"Two accomplices in the assault escaped authorities but we are certain they will be apprehended and justice will be served."

CP Kabera reminded Rwandans that it is unacceptable to take the law into your own hands and that only relevant authorities should be called upon to address crimes.
