The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) is in receipt of intelligence information that there are some people impersonating DEC officers and extorting members of the public particularly in Lusaka and Copperbelt Provinces.

DEC Public Relations Officer Mathias Kamanga said according to the information received, the people have been conducting illegal searches on unsuspecting members of the public and business entities and demanding for bribes from the victims for them not to be prosecuted.

Mr. Kamanga said DEC does not conduct searches on any premise without a Search Warrant.

He further said officers in the Commission always carry a valid identification card and do not ask for bribes from any members of the public to pervert the course of justice.

Mr. Kamanga has since cautioned members of the public to be on high alert and report such people to the nearest Police station or DEC for possible investigation and prosecution in accordance with the law.
