Angry residents in Kasungu on Sunday night invaded a farm belonging to a former councillor Posiyano Kaomba who is answering murder charges.
According to the residents, they are against a court decision to have Kaomba released on bail hence the attack on his farm.
During the fracas, the residents destroyed property worth millions of Kwacha at the farm which is in the area of Chief Wimbe.
Kaomba has since blamed traditional leaders for fueling the attack arguing that they are jealous of his land.
The former councillor was arrested after he shot a hunter due to a misunderstanding that erupted between them.
Through his lawyer, Kaomba applied for and was granted a court bail as the case awaits justice to prevail.
