NO ARRESTS YET AFTER SHOOT-OUT BETWEEN NIGERIANS AND SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE

JOHANNESBURG – No arrests have been made following a shootout between the police and Vanderbijl Park community members.

Yesterday, police were conducting a drug search in a house in Vanderbijl Park.

A police spokesperson says community members took a body from the house and put it in the police van, making it appear as if he was killed by the police.

This led to community members, most of them Nigerian nationals, attacking the police.

Six policemen were injured.

A case of assault, attempted murder, and murder has been opened.
