MP appeals for peace


CENTRAL Governor Robert Agarobe has appealed to relatives and friends of a man who was allegedly killed by police on the Hiritano Highway to refrain from taking the law into their own hands.
“Don’t do that. It will only frustrate the people and other road users,” he said.
On Tuesday, Agarobe, accompanied by NCD/Central Commander ACP Anthony Wagambie Jr, went to Inauabui, Mekeo LLG, to speak with Emmanuel Ivagai’s aggrieved relatives and friends where a roadblock was set up.
According to details received by The National, Ivagai was picked up on March 28 from his village by a vehicle allegedly belonging to the police along the highway.
According to his family who posted on social media asking for help to locate him, he was taken in an unmarked Land Cruiser on the night of March 28.
Ivagai’s body was found at the Tapini road junction on April 2, after six days.
Central commander Supt John Midi said that he was not happy with allegation of police involvement.
“We found the body and launched immediate investigations and are working closely with immediate relatives and witnesses.”
“We are very outraged by yet another complete lunacy and allegation and I am angry,” he added.
