JUST IN: Two suspects arrested after Pirates star hijacking

According to a shocking report from the Daily Sun earlier this month, the Pirates player’s black BMW vehicle and other items are said to have been taken during the hijacking, which reportedly took place in Johannesburg on 31 July. 

The report stated that Pule was also kidnapped during the ordeal, although there aren’t many clear details.


It was said that suspects had been tracked to Soweto after they used Pule’s bank cards to purchase alcohol in the township.

In the latest news on the matter, it’s reported by the Daily Sun on Friday that the police have recovered Pule’s black BMW 1 series in Riverlea in Western Johannesburg, and two men – aged 32 and 40 – were arrested for possession of a hijacked vehicle and unlicensed ammunition.

“The two suspects, linked to several hijacking in Joburg, were arrested and detaineed at the Langlaagte Police Station,” a police spokesperson said. “The car was seized and booked in at the SAP Aeroton pound.”

Pirates’ media officer Thandi Merafe had previously confirmed the incident involving Pule.

“The ordeal happened and the player is safe,” Merafe said “I cannot give more details on the incident until the investigations are concluded.”

Pirates began their season with a Derby clash against Swallows at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, 6 August. The Buccaneers recently confirmed the first team jersey numbers ahead of the 2022/23 season, with Pule having been set to wear No. 45.
