Coronavirus: Police Shoot 2 Persons To Death For Defying Lockdown Orders
March. 26, 2020
The Police in Rwanda has gunned down two persons for reportedly defying lockdown orders in the country.
The Rwandan government has imposed some lockdown orders in a bid to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The country has currently recorded 40 cases of the disease, with the COVID-19 fast spreading across board.
To this end, the Rwandan government began a two-week lockdown on March 22, restricting travel between towns and cities.
Also, all citizens have been asked to stay indoors as part of a set of strict ruled imposed by the government.
Bloomberg reports that two men in their twenties defied the lockdown orders and “attempted to tussle with officers”.
Unfortunately, they were shot and killed by the police officers, the Rwanda National Police spokesman John Bosco Kabera said.
The incident has sent shocking waves down the spines of the international community, with the Rwandan government coming under intense scrutiny.
