POLICE in Lusaka have offered to give K 50,000 to anyone with information that will lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of the suspected serial killer behind the recent deaths of two female victims recorded in Chilanga District. Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo has told Mwebantu that anyone with relevant information should confide in police officers at any nearest police station. “We reiterate our call for members of the public to be alert and avoid moving unaccompanied so as to avoid falling prey to attacks, Katongo has warned. She has added that the police service has intensified patrols and have deployed officers to investigate this matter. Katongo says this is in an effort to apprehend and bring to book the person behind the killings. Meanwhile, Katongo says the police command has received information that some people are buying Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) gate tickets from shoprite in bulk and are later reselling them to unsuspecting members of the public at an exorbitant price. She has warned all those that are behind such activities to desist or risk being arrested and prosecuted under Competition and Fair Trading Act. Katongo has advised members of the public to buy their tickets from recommended outlets and avoid being swindled. She has further cautioned that buying tickets from the streets may expose one to counterfeit tickets.
