Commissioner Nkurikiye said that the police have already opened investigations to identify the perpetrator of the crime. The pieces of information provided by residents of Carama indicate that the grenade attack is the 3rd in less than two years.
Moreover, two weeks ago, a resident of Carama II neighborhood was the target of an attack by a group of robbers armed with pieces of planks as he returned to his home around 10:00 pm. Those criminals beat him before stripping him of everything he had on him. Those residents of Carama neighborhoods also complain about theft in households and call for the strengthening of security in their neighborhoods.
