According to a Diplomatic source who has briefed the Zambian Watchdog, the development may lead to further strain the diplomatic relationship between Zambia and South Africa.
According to sources, a team of officers from the Police Intelligence at Police Headquarters were sent to South Africa to trail Henry.
The source said Henry only survived after he was tipped by some friendly security officers.
When contacted for a comment, a family friend to Henry confirmed the incident and said it was actually the second time that an attempt to abduct him has been made.
The source said Henry is being pursued by a team of Police Intelligence Officers from a Unit called Crime 1.
