LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)- The Malawi Police at Kanengo station are keeping in custody two men for being suspected to have killed a security guard at SADM Pharmaceuticals in Area 29 in the capital
Lilongwe in an attempt to steal.
The development comes barely three weeks after the police assured the general public that the thugs would be hunted following the death of the guard on January 12, 2017.
The criminals escaped without stealing anything after the nearby security guards alerted the Police who promptly arrived at the scene of crime, and the gangsters who were armed with panga knives, had already heavily assaulted the deceased on the forehead and back.
But Kanengo Police deputy spokesperson Salomy Chibwana has identified the two suspects as James Adam, 24 and Prince Willy Nakoma, 24, who were arrested on Sunday.
Chibwana told The Maravi Post that the police used its intelligence network to arrest Adam in Balaka who later confessed to have had a hand the guard’s death.
The police publicist said James revealed that he committed the crime with other five friends including Nakoma whom the police arrested later in Lilongwe on the same day.
“We are still hunting the other three suspects who are at large but will get them soon. The two are in our custody waiting to take them to court to answer murder charges contrary to section 209 of the Penal
Code”, said Chibwana.
The suspects Adam (who is the regular criminal) and Willy hail from Bonongwe and Maliri Villages, Traditional Authorities (T.As) Chimwala and Maliri in Magochi and Lilongwe districts respectively.
