Five policemen were allegedly struck with blindness while trying to arrest a Zambian pastor, Prophet Shepherd M Mesala.
The Zambian prophet had been ‘ambushed’ by policemen who wanted to arrest him at his house when the incident happened, reported Zambian Watch.
About five policemen were said to have gone blind in the process of trying to get him arrested around midnight.
Mesala revealed this in a testimony he gave to Lungu on their Youtube channel and Facebook.
He said the policemen eventually begged him to restore their sight, which he reportedly refused to do, adding that he’d only agree to that if his friend, Mr Chilufya Tayali, was released.
The police are yet to release a statement regarding the issue.
