By Christopher Miti -Police in Chipata have detained two more suspects in connection with the murder of a 36-year-old man who was beaten to death by Nyau dancers for allegedly burning down their Shrine commonly known as Dambwe in chief Chikuwe’s area of Kasenengwa District.
The number of suspects that have been arrested by Police in connection with the murder of Chipateni Soko is now six.
Eastern Province Police Commissioner Luckson Sakala confirmed the arrest of the suspects to journalists today.
Mr. Sakala said the suspects are yet to be charged, adding that some of them may be turned into state witnesses.
The deceased was tortured by the dancers on Thursday last week and died on Friday.
Mr. Sakala said Soko was tortured by the dancers who went to the extent of burning him with logs of fire as a form of punishment.
And during Soko’s burial yesterday, some angry villagers ransacked the reconstructed Nyau hideout popularly known as Dambwe which was within Vwala Graveyard.
The villagers set the Dambwe on fire before destroying the drums and other items that the dancers use.
