Johannesburg - A man accused of murder, robbery and possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition was released on free bail by the Kabokweni Magistrate's Court, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.

Sanele Godfrey Sambo, 22, also known as "Spykos", was released on Friday because of new facts, said Brigadier Selvy Mohlala.

Mohlala could not provide details of the new facts that led to Sambo's release.

Sambo faced two charges of murder, one charge of business robbery, and two charges of possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

He was arrested in June last year in Prinsloo Street, Pretoria, after police received a tip-off about where he was hiding, said Mohlala. Provincial commissioner Lieutenant General Thulani Ntobela expressed concern on Monday over Sambo's release.

"The police had worked tirelessly in ensuring that the suspect had been arrested after he ran away from his evil actions," said Ntobela.

"I am very much disappointed by the release and we will investigate if there was any form of unfair collusion, either by the police or anyone, and get to the bottom of this matter," said Ntobela.
