Notorious Namibian fugitive re-arrested in Zambia

25 April 2016, 13:43

Lusaka - A notorious Namibian fugitive, who has been on the run for the past six months, has allegedly been apprehended by Zambian law officials, All Africa has reported.

Nine Masule had been on the run since October last year. He was believed to be in the custody of Namibian police following his arrest in Zambia.

The suspect, a well-known criminal, who was linked to several murders and rapes, was reported to have drawn the attention of hundreds of residents in the Katima Mulilo, who had claimed that he had been terrorising them for the past few months.

Police confirmed that force was used during Masule's arrest, although no further information could be given.

This came as an audio recording was doing rounds on social media, with Masule claiming that he would kill police officers if they pursued his arrest.

"I am Nine. I would like to tell all people who have plans to report me that the N$10 000 reward will cost you your life. I would also like to warn police officers who are not ready, do not come looking for me as I will kill you," Msaule was heard saying in the recording.

Masule said this after a N$10 000 reward was offered for information pertaining to his whereabouts, according to New Era

Masule would face charges relating to two murder cases, two rape cases, three incidents of housebreaking and one charge of escaping from police custody.

The fugitive was likely to appear in court on Monday.
