Police to investigate alleged kidnapping


Police will be investigating an alleged kidnapping of the Ijivitari MP-elect at the Tropic Air Hanger at Jackson Airport in Port Moresby last week.
Police Commissioner Gari Baki said that he could not provide details yet as the matter was under investigation.
“It could have been rogue police officers or civilians with their own agendas and wearing fake police uniforms,” Baki said.
Ijivitari member-elect Richard Masere was nearly taken hostage at the Tropic Air terminal but was saved by Walter Schnabel, MP-elect for Namatanai open, and Allen Bird, MP-elect for East Sepik.
Masere sustained bruises and had a torn  shirt from the incident.
Police believe some police officers were involved and they were trying to find out who made the attempt to take Masere to Alautau against his will.
