Lusikisiki police need help finding suspects involved in a fatal armed robbery

Lusikisiki - Police in Lusikisiki have appealed to the public for assistance with information that can help them solve a murder case that occurred over the weekend.

"On Saturday, at around 23:00, at Malizole Locality Hombe A/A in Lusikisiki, five men were sleeping in a flat where they were visiting a cousin, who is a student at a Local High School and stays alone," said police spokesperson, Capt Nozuko Handile.

"After they saw it was late, she told them to sleepover at her flat as she called her boyfriend and left with him. 

"After sometime, there was a knock on the door when they were about to open; the door was pushed inside, three men came in, two of them had a firearm; they demanded money and cellphones and instructed the 25-year-old deceased to hand over money and cellphone."

The deceased was a cousin of the student.

"As others were lying down, they heard gunshots and there was blood coming out of the deceased's head."

Capt Handile said that the suspects ran away and the other four victims called the police.
