Two Conmen nabbed for defrauding businessman in bogus trade deal

Lilongwe Police Station has detained two individuals on suspicion that they orchestrated a fraudulent scheme, resulting in the loss of K750,000 by a local businessman.

Lilongwe Police spokesperson, Hastings Chigalu, has identified the accused as Dauson Aaron and Allan Kambani who allegedly posed as entrepreneurs seeking a partnership with the victim to supply Guinea fowl drugs to an unidentified livestock drug dealer in Lilongwe, promising potential profits of K14 million.

According to Chigalu, the incident unfolded on February 2, 2024 when the suspects contacted the victim and arranged a meeting near Crossroads Hotel.

The victim, unaware of the ruse, handed over K100,000 for two purportedly genuine guinea fowl drug tins and an additional K650,000 towards the alleged venture.

However, after the victim attempted to contact the suspects for a follow-up meeting, their phones remained unreachable, prompting suspicion.

He alerted the police who quickly apprehended the suspects at Mtsiriza and they confessed to have committed the crime.

They will appear in court soon to face charges.

Aaron is a resident of Nkhuku Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Chikumbu, Mulanje while Allan Kambani hails from Mwambeni Village, T/A Jenala, Phalombe District.
