Cape Town – Faced with the prospect of being arrested and possibly spending several years behind bars, an Eastern Cape hijacking suspect shot himself in the head.
The deceased and his alleged accomplice had been heading in the direction of Mount Aylif, near the province’s border with KwaZulu-Natal, on the N2 on Saturday morning when they got cornered in a Ford Fiesta by officers attached to the Alfred Nzo District highway patrol unit, police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu said.
The car was allegedly hijacked in Msobomvu, Butterworth, 265km from Mount Aylif.
’’It is alleged that during the early hours of Saturday morning, the Highway Patrol Unit received information regarding a motor vehicle, a blue Ford Fiesta, that had been hijacked in Msobomvu,’’ Naidu said.
