Lae Metropolitan Superintendent, Anthony Wagambie Jnr confirmed with Loop PNG that there has been no breakout as rumours had alleged.
The rumours had circulated throughout Lae City alleging there had been a second break out at Buimo Jail which had Lae residents flipping out again.
However, Metsup Wagambie Jnr confirmed otherwise.
He said he did not know how the rumors started but Lae residents shouldn’t believe such speculations, but only when the police or the CS confirm it.
Residents can go about their daily Friday routine but must be on high alert as some of the prisoners that escaped last Thursday are still on the run.
Lae residents are to report any sightings of suspicious looking men to police and move around in groups to avoid any mishaps with the escapees.
