The South African Police Service in Alldays outside Makhado arrested two suspects in their 20's, following a shooting incident which took place along the Alldays and Vivo road this morning.
It is alleged that in the early hours this morning, three suspects who were allegedly involved in the murder of Johan Kruger aged 57, which occurred during a farm attack incident in the Samboubrug policing
area near Lephalale, were intercepted by the Alldays Farm Watch Patrol.
During the interception, the patrollers tried to stop a vehicle but the suspects started to shoot at them and they retaliated. In the process, one suspect was injured, taken to hospital under police guard and two suspects managed to escape to the nearby farms on foot leaving their getaway car behind.
The police members were summoned and a joint search operation ensued until the second suspect aged 21 was apprehended.
The suspect's car was searched and various items were confiscated including firearms and ammunition.
The origin of all the recovered items including the motor vehicle is still being determined by the ongoing police investigations. The remaining suspect is still being sought.
The suspects will soon appear before the Senwabarwana and Louis Trichardt Magistrates’ Courts respectively on charges of murder, possession of firearms and ammunition without license and possession of suspected stolen properties.
The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has complimented the SAPS members and the Alldays Farm Watch Patrol who were involved in this milestone achievement on the job well done.
