One nabbed for NIMT killing

17 April 2019 | Crime


Two suspects were brought in for questioning by the police for the double murder that took place Monday morning at the Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT).
Executive director of NIMT, Eckart Mueller, and his deputy Heimo Hellwig, were gunned down at the entrance of NIMT's main campus at Arandis.
Police spokesperson Edwin Kanguatjivi has confirmed to Namibian Sun that the police last night night brought in two suspects for questioning with regards to the murders.
According to Kanguatjivi one of the suspects was taken into custody in Karibib and the second person was taken into custody in Tsumeb on suspicion that he might have had knowledge of the actual murders before they occurred. However, this suspect has been released after he was questioned, said Kanguatjivi.
With regards to the primary suspect Kanguatjivi said that he was taken into custody in Karibib on last night after his wife, who is a teacher in Otavi, reported him missing earlier this week.
According to Kanguatjivi the man, who is an instructor of NIMT based in Tsumeb, was transferred to Walvis Bay today for questioning and thereafter a decision will be taken on whether any charges will be made.
The identity of both persons is known to Namibian Sun but cannot be revealed until either or both are formally charged and have appeared in court.
