An unidentified group of armed robbers donning full police uniforms Friday raided Ndirande Teachers Development Centre (TDC) in Blantyre city and went away with all computers.
The gang also severely injured security guards whom they forcefully tied to a tree, police have confirmed.
Blantyre Police Station Public Relations Officer, Elizabeth Divala, confirmed receiving a report on the issue but was yet to get appropriate details.
But according to Primary School Advisor for Ndirande Zone, Christopher Chaika, upon reaching the scene, the criminals surrounded the premises and told the guards they were on patrol.
After the guards quizzed them about their purported operation, the bunch of hooligans violently captured them before tying them to a tree.
“They then broke into the TDC offices and dismantled all the computer machines which they took away,” he explained.
The gang members, among others, stole 18 central processing units (CPUs), 26 computer keyboards, 18 monitors, extension cables and 26 mouse, together valuing at more than K1 million.
According to the police spokesperson no arrests had been made yet but the issue was being investigated.
Ndirande Teachers Development Centre is located inside the popular Blantyre Girls Primary School, off Blantyre-Ndirande Chinseu road.
