Driving Toyota Salon (Sprinter) MZ 5298, the chase ensued from Khristwick to Namiwawa BP filling station where they collided with a minibus in the process before hitting part of the filling station. Southern Region Police Public Relations Officer, Nicholas Gondwa disclosed to Nyasa Times in an interview that the three were on wanted list since last week after Admarc officials alerted police of the incident.
“On September 6th this year they collected goods from Limbe Admarc using fake cheques. After realizing they have been duped, the Admarc officials alerted the police. And today the same people went to same Admarc depot and produced another K11.2 million fake cheque, but the officials were quick to inform the police who responded swiftly,” Gondwa said.
