Johannesburg - A KwaZulu-Natal police captain accused of executing a robber has appeared in the Pinetown Regional Court, the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) said on Thursday.

Spokesperson Moses Dlamini said Captain Dumisani Dladla was arrested on Wednesday and appeared in court on the same day.

He was released on a warning.

Dlamini said the captain was involved in a shoot-out with robbers at a Pinetown KFC in October last year.

An officer and one of the robbers were killed in the shoot-out.

"At the time, it was alleged that the suspected robber was shooting at the police captain and that there was an exchange of fire," Dlamini said.

"An investigation was conducted and it found that the deceased was shot execution style, while not posing a threat to the policeman."

He said the captain had "covered up" the incident.

"The IPID is looking into the possibility that other police officers were complicit in the cover-up."
