Buimo breakout: One escapee caught

One escaped prisoner has been picked up in Wau in the Morobe Province while a further 6 are being pursued by police and correctional service officers who are tracking down the recent Buimo jail escapees

An initial report into the breakout was furnished to the CS Commissioner’s office last Friday however Commissioner Michael Waipo has yet to make comments on the findings.

He reveals that there is a second team of investigators who flew in last week  to go in and focus on reviewing the findings of second breakout.

Waipo says that the two review teams will see if there were other factors which contributed to the escape of the prisoners.

Since the June 5th breakout 10 prisoners have been recaptured while a second break out two weeks later on Saturday 20th of June saw 11 juveniles escape.

Meantime, the joint operations between police and CS are progressing as more leads are being uncovered about the two mass breakouts .
