Malawi Police in Limbe have arrested two suspects for being found in possession of 18 bottles of lotion which contained the illicit drug of Cannabis Sativa, locally known as Chamba.
Limbe Police Deputy Public Relations Officer (PRO), Widson Nhlane Friday identified the two as Samuel Chokomba, 20 and Eliza Sinsamala, 19 who were arrested after they received a tip that the two process the drug into lotion which they sell at Limbe market.
“The drug section at Limbe Police Station received information from well wishers to the effect that the duo processes the stuff into lotion which they sell in Limbe,” he said.
“Investigations were launched which yielded positive results after arresting them plus seizure of the 18 bottles of lotion containing the stuff,” Nhlane added.
Deputy PRO said the drug has since been taken to Bvumbwe Research Station for laboratory tests before the two are taken to court soon to answer charges of being found in possession of Cannabis Sativa.
Chokomba hails from Mtambalika Village in the area of Traditional Authority Kapeni in Blantyre while Sinsamala hails from Chiwembu Village in the area of Traditional Authority Nthache in Mwanza.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
