POLICE have praised the people attending a major church event in a remote part of Morobe for behaving themselves.
Boana police station commander Snr Sgt Alex Romosaso said the only incidents they had to investigate were two road accidents.
Hundreds of people were in Boana for the Evangelical Lutheran Church’s 32nd synod which was opened by Prime Minister James Marape last week.
Romosaso said a truck belonging to the Works Department carrying a full load of sand overturned while trying to give way to a vehicle.
No one was injured.
The second accident involved an ambulance from the Boana Health Centre which went off the road after a brake failure on Monday.
Two people died and two sustained injuries.
Apart from those incidents, he said police were happy with how the people conducted themselves.
“Everyone cooperated,” Sgt Romosaso said. “There wasn’t any law and order issue in Boana.
“I am the only regular policeman here, plus the 14 police reservists from Nawaeb who are helping me provide security during the synod.
“We also have the rural patrol unit from the provincial headquarters and the Mobile Squad 15 who are helping us provide security here,” he said.
Sgt Romosaso said the operation would continue until the end of the synod and commend the people for behaving well until everyone returned home.
