Thirteen suspects, who were arrested in connection with the brutal killing of five policemen and a retired soldier in Ngcobo in the Eastern Cape, are expected to appear in the Ngcobo magistrate court on Monday.
A group of assailants gunned down the on-duty police officers at the police station and allegedly blasted an ATM machine.
High calibre police units were deployed to track down merciless criminals involved in the gunning down of the police.

Police encountered resistance and a shootout ensued between the police and the alleged criminals.
Seven suspects died on the scene, and three were seriously wounded.
Ten suspects were arrested at the church premises, and three family members handed themselves over to the police.
Scores of people are expected to attend the court proceedings.
Security inside and outside the court is expected to be intensified.
