Second suspect surrenders

The National,Wednesday June 29th, 2016

A man in fear for his life in relation to the killing of Dr Alphonse Rongap in Lae over the weekend surrendered to police yesterday.
He is the second suspect in police custody after one man was arrested only a few hours after the long-serving Angau Memorial Hospital paediatrician was shot at Centre Market on Saturday.
Police said a knife was also used by the criminals who were attempting to steal his vehicle.
Lae Metropolitan Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr said a 25-year-old man of Sepik and Morobe parentage gave himself up to police yesterday morning.
He said there were more suspects still on the run.
“I received a phone call around 9am this (yesterday) morning and went to Sipaia village where a suspect involved in the killing of Dr Rongap surrendered himself to police,” Wagambie said.
He said the man had feared for his life as Rongap was a village leader and a “big man” in the Biwat community. His people did not take the killing lightly.
Wagambie appealed to the other suspects still on the run to surrender to police for their own safety.
