WINDHOEK: The Congolese national who escaped from a police van at the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court on Monday, is still at large.
The Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s Crime Co-ordinator for the Khomas Region, Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishidimbwa told Nampa yesterday that suspected drug dealer Lewis da Silva Dabo, who is from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is still on the run.
On Monday morning, suspect Dabo, 33, surprised the Police as he allegedly jumped out of the police van and ran away shortly after the police opened the vehicle’s door upon arrival at the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court.
However, another Congolese man and a Namibian woman who were arrested by NamPol’s Drug Law-Enforcement Unit together with fugitive Dabo after they were allegedly found in possession of cocaine over the weekend, made their first appearance in court here on Monday.
The two suspects – Malesho Kabeya, 36, from the Democratic Republic of Congo and 26-year-old Windhoek resident Rudselia Boois appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court on charges of dealing in cocaine and kidnapping.
