Gabriel Marlon Chipman is believed to have been in a queue waiting for clearance to enter the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to deliver acid.

Copperbelt commanding officer Peacewell Mweemba said police received information that a deceased who was in a Benz truck registration BCD4546 , the property of Access logistics of Ndola was found dead inside the acid truck.

He said the incident occurred yesterday at Mokambo border in Mufulira.

“Brief facts are that the truck in question was at Mokambo boarder in the queue awaiting clearance to DR Congo to deliver acid.
