He was also possessing offensive weapons and explosives, apart from telling people that he is an officer stationed at Cobbe Barracks, but assigned to Blantyre Camp site, according to Blantyre Police publicist Elizabeth Divala.

Divala said the suspect, who hails from Kazembe village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Chikowi in Zomba, went to a house of Glory Kasisi in full military gear and claimed that he had received information that the house had been invaded by robbers.

Then the fake army officer asked for Kasisi’s shortgun to use against the said robbers.

“She gave him the shortgun which is lawfully owned in which the suspect loaded two live ammunitions and disappeared with it.

“She then reported the matter to Chilomoni Police who managed to arrest the suspect and recover the shortgun,” said Divala, adding investigations are underway to establish where he got the military attire.
