Namibia's most wanted fugitive Lazarus Shaduka handed himself over Monday after about four years on the run, police confirmed.

Police confirmed that Shaduka surrendered himself at Namibian Consulate at Ondjiva in southern Angola.

Shaduka, who was wanted for the murder of his wife, had a 100,000 Namibian dollar (about 7,000 U.S. dollars) reward on his head.

He fled the country in 2012 just hours before he was supposed to hand himself over to the prison authorities to start serving a 20-year jail term imposed by the Supreme Court.

The murder of Selma Shaimemanya was committed in 2008 at the couple's Windhoek home.

After his arrest, Shaduka spent about two years in custody before the High Court found him guilty of culpable homicide and fined him 25,000 Namibian dollars (about 1,700 U.S dollars).

The Supreme Court, however, rescinded the High Court ruling that had found him guilty of culpable homicide. Instead, the Supreme Court convicted him of murder and sentenced him to 20 years imprisonment.

Since 2013, the Namibian Police could not find him until Monday when he handed himself over. Endit
