The two suspects believed to be part of a group responsible
for the attack on the SAPS and a business robbery on 21 June in Apel have
appeared before the Mecklenburg Magistrate ‘court on Thursday.
The suspects, Fabiano Ndlovu (24) and Alex Ndlovu (28) were denied bail and their cases were postponed to 05 November for further bail application and for further police investigations.
Their arrest emanates from the attack on four police members who were on patrol at the Apel shopping centre in two vehicles.
The members were attacked by the heavily armed suspects who had just robbed a filling station and later took the firearms from the members.
“The suspects were found at their hideout in Moroke Village in the Mecklenburg policing precinct. During the arrest, the police also recovered three of the firearms which were taken from the police officers during the robbery,” said Limpopo SAPS spokesman Col Moatshe Ngoepe. The police investigations are still continuing.
