Police actively investigating Pamela’s abduction
By MAIMBO MWEEMBA
Inspector General of Police Lemmy Kajoba says the Police are actively investigating the matter involving a mobile money agent Pamela Chisupa aged 22.
This follows a video which has gone viral on various social media platforms, showing the lady identified as Pamela Chisupa being tortured with a round metal bar.
And Mr Kajoba said in a statement that initially, Pamela was reported as missing on April 16th, 2022 by her sister.
“She stated that on the material date April 13, 2022 at about 14:00 hours at Shoprite trading area along Cairo road the victim was at her Airtel booth when two male persons went to her booth and pretended to be customers wanting to transact money. Later on the duo was seen moving with her across Cairo road and that was the last time she was seen,” he said.
Mr Kajoba also said that investigations instituted so far are indicating that on April 15, 2022 the boyfriend received a call from the victim’s phone demanding for a ransom of K15, 000=00 for her release.
“We would like to inform the public that this type of crime is alien to our country. The Zambia Police takes protection of women against any form of crime very serious and we have put in all our resources and are working with other collaborating partners to secure a possible safe release from the allegedly abductors,” he said.
Mr Kajoba has since called on the general citizenry to fully be cooperative with the police as they work round the clock to have Pamela released from the allegedly abductors.
