Hell broke loose in Dowa district on Sunday when angry and nonsense villagers raided a police station and beat up a murder suspect.
Police have confirmed the villagers pulverized the police station, took out a murder suspect, Ganizani Gwani and beat him severely before he was whisked away by well wishers.
Dowa police spokesperson Richard Kaponda said the villagers were after Gwani who is suspected to have murdered Geoffrey Kansinjiro after the two picked up a quarrel.
No one has been arrested in connection with the demolition of the police station. Investigations are still going on.
A similar incident happened in Dedza recently where irate villagers also smashed a police
station and took out a murder suspect whom they beat to death. Over 30 villagers were arrested in connection with the incident.
