Jane Furse/Nebo

The Provincial Commissioner of the Police in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, has established a high level team of investigators to work relentlessly in tracing down ruthless suspects involved in separate cases of murder, attempted murder, business robbery, kidnapping and hijacking that took place in the Jane Furse and Nebo policing areas between Friday 10 June and Saturday 11 June.

Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, Limpopo Provincial Police Spokesperson, said during one of the incidents, occurred on Friday 10 June; a group of heavily armed suspects stormed the Caltex filling station in Jane Furse and robbed an undisclosed amount of cash, cigarettes and cell phones.

“The suspects then hijacked a known medical doctor his Ford Ranger motor vehicle when he was about to refuel at the same filling station and drove off with him in his car,” he said.

Mojapelo added that the suspects proceeded to Mathapisa Village under Nebo policing area and Ga-Moretsele Village in Jane Furse area, where they robbed two liquor outlets of alcohol and cash, using the hijacked vehicle to load the robbed items.

“The suspects then abandoned the doctor together with the vehicle in Ga-Masemola Village without harming him, after offloading the robbed items. They then loaded them into their vehicle and fled,” explained Mojapelo.

He said in another separate incident that occurred on Saturday 11 June 2022 two male victims were found hacked with a sharp object at Mamone Mokwena Meetse Section by unknown suspects.

“The police found a Toyota Hi-Lux Double Cab bakkie on the scene of the crime and the two victims were declared dead upon arrival of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Three other victims were discovered on the same day at about 10:00, in the same area lying in the bushes with serious injuries,” Mojapelo said.

Mojapelo said police preliminary investigations revealed that the victims were robbed of their vehicle after giving three men who were coming from a local tavern a lift.

“The suspects drove to nearby bushes where they severely assaulted the victims and later left them at the scene together with their vehicle. The three victims were admitted at Jane Furse Hospital after one of them managed to seek help from the community. Two victims later succumbed to their injuries,” added Mojapelo.

General Hadebe said the ruthless criminals must be hunted down and brought to book. “We are pleading with the public to provide valuable information that can lead to the apprehension of these suspects,” she said.
