Lingadzi Police arrests hacker

Lingadzi Police Station is keeping in custody 26-year-old Lovemore Chikopa for allegedly defrauding business individuals of millions of Kwacha.

Lingadzi Police’s publicist, Cassim Manda, says Chikopa deceived high-profile business individuals by convincing them he had transferred funds into their accounts through the banking system.

In his latest scheme, Chikopa tricked a Lilongwe-based businessman on car batteries sales worth K700,000 by sending a fake bank alert message and the victim reported the incident to the law enforcers when he did not receive a bank notification.

Chikopa was arrested at a guest house in Lilongwe, where he had accumulated a bill of over K1 million during his 10-day stay and Police recovered stolen items, including clothing and he is believed to have committed similar crimes in Blantyre and Salima.

Chikopa, with a Bachelor’s Degree in ICT and a Diploma in Hacking and Prolation Systems, hails from Bokosi Village, Traditional Authority Mpama in Chiradzulu.
