Cape Town – Three men were arrested on Monday afternoon in connection with the murder of Cape Town police Constable Lindekile Sikade, Western Cape police said.  

The men, aged 28, 34 and 37 were arrested after officers followed information which led them to addresses in Lower Crossroads, Phillip-East, said Lieutenant Colonel Robert Netshiunda.

Sikade, 39, who was stationed at Grassy Park Detective Unit, was apparently on his way to work when he was shot and killed in April. The suspects fled the scene with his service pistol.  

They would appear in the Mitchell's Plain Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on charges of murder, Netshiunda said.
