Frustrated locals block off HB road

A commotion is currently taking place at the Konedobu road heading into the main village of Hanuabada.

Villagers have blocked off the main road.

This comes after a local was served an eviction by an unmarked white 10 seater with police men dressed in police task force uniform.

Landowner and resident for 46 years, Gari Garia told Loop PNG that the matter was still in court adding that this came as a surprise to him and his family.

Village elders confirmed also that they had no knowledge of the matter.

They said it is their understanding that any matter regarding land issues, they should be consulted.

They said in this case, they were never consulted, let alone acknowledged at any point in time.

Meantime, the landowners said the road into the big village is on lock down and will be closed for an indefinite period of time.


More to come on Loop PNG and TVWan News tonight.
