Rwandan gospel singer Kizito Mihigo was found dead in a police cell. Mihigo was arrested three days ago near the border with Burundi. He was accused of trying to flee the country and join rebel groups. Authorities had barred him from leaving the country due to a previous conviction.
Police spokesman JB Kabeera shared on social media that Mihigo’s body was found during a routine check by security forces at Remera police station on Monday morning. Mihigo had been charged with corruption and illegal movement across the border.
Kizito Mihigo is suspected to have killed himself while in police cell.
Rwanda Investigation Bureau accused Mihigo of trying to bribe people who had seen him. He was stopped by villagers who, later on, handed him to the police.
According to the East African, Mihigo was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a plot to murder or harm Rwanda President Paul Kagame and other top leaders in 2015.
