A 25-year old Ethiopian national has ended into police hands in Rumphi after entering the country without proper documents.
Rumphi police spokesperson Victor Khamisi has identified the suspect as Salam Ahoro who was apprehended at Chinyolo in the district.
According to Khamisi, police had been tipped by well-wishers that two vehicles which were coming from Karonga heading to the direction of Mzuzu were carrying illegal immigrants.
Police followed the matter and they impounded the two vehicles, a Toyota Sienta with registration number KA 9081 and another one with registration number RU 9322.
