According to IOL’s report, the South African Police Service (SAPS) arrested three men for their alleged involvement in the hit on AKA, whose real name is Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, last month.
The trio was captured in Cape Town after being monitored and pursued for some time.
As per the IOL report, the suspects are currently undergoing police interrogation while in custody.
The suspects have not been identified, but they were nabbed in Belhar, located in the Western Cape over the weekend.
On 10th February, AKA and his close friend, Tebello “Tib” Motsoane, were callously assassinated outside Wish Restaurant along Florida Road in Morningside, Durban.
While he was saying goodbye to his friends before heading to a local club for his birthday celebration, two unknown attackers ambushed him. AKA was shot twice in the head, and Tibz was also killed by one of the assailants.
According to reports, investigations teams had been covertly monitoring the suspected assassins for weeks.
Detectives from the SAPS and members of the National Intervention Unit swooped in on the three men at Erica Square in Belhar on Sunday, as per IOL’s report.
Furthermore, Netwerk24 disclosed that one of the suspects is allegedly connected to multiple taxi-related killings that occurred in Empangeni, a town in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
According to reports, the police were able to track the suspects to the Western Cape after they committed crimes in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).
The suspects purportedly posed as officials from the Department of Social Development and went from house to house in KZN, claiming to be representatives of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and offering to help people register for grants.
The police investigation then led them to Belhar in the Western Cape, where they monitored the suspects’ movements before apprehending them.
The SAPS have reportedly recovered a white Mercedes-Benz, believed to be the getaway car used by the alleged assassins on the night AKA was killed.
