NATIONAL Capital District Met Supt Perou N’dranou says people should drink alcohol responsibly as it posed a risk to themselves and others.
He said people who consumed too much alcohol or got drunk were prone to losing consciousness or behaving erratically which could end up in unfortunate circumstances.
N’dranou said this after an incident at a night club in Port Moresby involving a 22-year-old university student, Jeffrey Kamne, who died at the Port Moresby General Hospital on Thursday after falling down a flight of stairs at a night club. Family spokesman Wilfread Kulno said, Kamne went with a relative, Mare Rocky, 25, to the club at Boroko after drinking at home on Tuesday night.
He claimed while the pair were drinking, they went to club’s balcony and continued drinking until they fell asleep and were woken up by club bouncers who assaulted them.
Kulno said Kamne was from Jiwaka and was upgrading his grade 12 marks at the University of PNG’s Open Campus and was also short listed for Correctional Services (CIS) recruitment this year when he lost his life.
Kulno claimed that Kamne and Rocky were assaulted by club staff .
