Suspect for shooting is detained by police Professor and two others from the University of Limpopo

A suspect has been detained by Limpopo police in connection with the murder of Saber Tayob Mohammed, a professor at the University of Limpopo who was shot dead on March 13, 2022, as he jogged close to his home.

Mohammed was shooting at point-blank range while running close to the posh Sterpark district when a Sedan stopped next to him and an armed man opened fire.

The Provincial Organized Crimes Unit was given the docket after a murder case was opened.

The 33-year-old suspect, who has been linked to and accused of killing Mohammed on Thursday, was already in police detention for the slayings of two other persons and a robbery at a Polokwane BMW dealership.

When the car he took ran out of petrol adjacent to the former Peter Mokaba Stadium, the suspect was captured shortly after he killed a customer during a business robbery at the BMW dealership.

Investigations took them to a Polokwane hotel where they discovered a car parked that matched the Sedan used by the perpetrators who shot the professor and fled.

Further inquiries conclusively connected him to the professor's slaying.
