According to the indictment of 29 April 1996, Ryandikayo, who has no first name, was the manager of a restaurant in Kibuye préfecture. In the original indictment, Ryandikayo is charged alongside seven other accused including convicted génocidaires, Clément Kayishema, Mikaeli Muhimana and Obed Ruzindana, and fugitives, Charles Sikubwabo and Aloys Ndimbati.

Ryandikayo is accused along with his fellow indictees of conspiring to kill the Tutsi population in Kibuye préfecture, and in the furtherance of this aim, with murdering and assisting in the murder of Tutsi civilians. The indictment alleges that Ryandikayo participated in the massacre of thousands of men, women and children who had congregated in Mubuga church, and directed militias and gendarmes to attack the church with guns, grenades, and other weapons in an attack lasting several days. For his role, Ryandikayo is charged with genocide, conspiracy to commit genocide, crimes against humanity (murder, extermination and other inhumane acts) and war crimes.

Ryandikayo remains a fugitive of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) after fleeing the country following the advance of the RPF led by current President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame.
