“The OCS who responded to the complaint went ahead to the patrol base where he found the rowdy mob of about 200 people, and his attempt to address them fell on deaf ears,” said the DCI on October 9, 2020.
The DCI added: “Instead, the mob pelted stones on him where he incurred serious injuries and was rushed to the hospital, before torching the patrol base and damaging the police motor vehicle.”
According to police, Lusava was arrested on 7th October 2020 for assaulting the officer in charge of Mbururu patrol base but was released on a free bond at 12.40 pm pending the filing of a P3 form.
The suspect’s mother went to the base the following day and reported that her son never went home after being released, whereby she was referred to the OCS Matunda Police Station for further assistance.
