Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) officers in the early hours of Tuesday (today) raided the house of former Evelyn Hone College Journalism lecturer Clayson Hamasaka’s house in Chalala area in Lusaka.

The officers are said to have turned the house into a mess as they searched for the drugs.

They had earlier grabbed all cell phones from Mr Hamasaka and his wife, according to Mr Hamasaka’s friend who confirmed the development to QFM News.
