ENB Provincial Police Commander, Joseph Tabali, is appealing to the people of East New Britain to make it their business to keep their celebrations indoors.
He said for residents to be mindful of the recent breakout at the Kerevat prison and that police are still on high alert in recapturing them.
“Especially for women and young girls, they should not be seen walking around alone but be accompanied by a male figure.”
He adds that due to the recent breakout of escapees, it is still quite unsafe for residents to be roaming about this festive season.
Meanwhile, PPC Tabali said there will be no liquor ban in the province but strongly urges residents to be well aware of their surroundings and celebrate at home.
