The DPD said his office is conducting assessment to establish the full extent of loss.

Zomba police station through its Spokesperson Patricia Sipiliano said they are investigating the matter.

The incident happened as the city’s Mayor Melia Douglas and Chief Executive Officer Dyson Jangiya are in Lilongwe on official duties.
