A Bangladeshi national, who have been hunted by Mozambique police and Interpol has been arrested in Rwanda’s hotel Okapi where he has been coordinating his business of human trafficking, to Mozambique, Great Lakes Voice reports.

Sattar Miah, a Mozambique national, was arrested on Monday evening, in Okapi Hotel at around 22:00 hours where the police believes Sattar, has been staying and coordinating his illegal activities.

According to Rwanda National police spokesman, Superintendent Eric Kayinga, the Bangladeshi were bought at $1500 all from their home country and they are to be sold with good profit as the human trafficker suspect promised them good life reaching to Europe.

“54 Bangladeshi nationals were found living in two hired in Gikondo houses, in the city suburb and all they say their identity documents were with the suspected ‘human trafficker’ who brought them in via Dubai and many countries to Rwanda,” Kayiranga said.

Police also discovered two residential houses in Gikondo and Kacyiru which accommodated 30 and 24 Bangladeshi males respectively, police believe they were brought into the country illegally by Sattar, as he planned to ship them off to Mozambique.

Kayiranga told the media that all Bangladeshis will be transported back to their country of origin and the suspect will be brought to justice or be handed to Interpol.

The Rwandan police are yet to find out if the human trafficker suspect had carried out  previous business though Rwanda but police spokesman, promised to investigate or find out through the suspects.

The Bangladesh citizens say that they were brought promised good life, but police believes that the human trafficker suspect profits a lot from his illegal trade. However, it’s not clear whether the Bangladesh citizens arrived in the country undetected.

Though Sattar, claims that the 54 Bangladeshi are his relatives, Police say that the Bangladeshi nationals don’t know each other and added that when police raided their houses they hid under the beds.
