Police in Mpulungu have arrested four suspects in connection with last Saturday’s political violence.

Northern Province Police Commissioner Jestus Nsokolo confirmed the arrest of the four who are believed to be prime suspects.

Mr Nsokolo said other people linked to the violent attacks have reportedly fled Mpulungu.

Mr Nsokolo said police will continue looking for the said people and has since appealed to the public with information on their whereabouts to report.

“The investigations into the violence are ongoing and police will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to book,’’ he said.

Mr Nsokolo said officers in Mpulungu are on high alert to ensure no campaign activities are held by the ruling PF and opposition UPND in the Port Town within the 14-day suspension period.
