The incident happened on Monday evening, his colleague, at Masala police station where he previously worked, has confirmed.
The shot police officer has been identified as Ignatius Chola who was in the company of his brother. Chola was transferred to Solwezi from Ndola after serving a suspension from police. He was once arrested for stealing an excavator from a construction company in 2019.
“Last night, he and other ex-officers and his brother attempted a robbery and that is how he was shot,” explained the friend.
