Gulf police commander passes away

The provincial police commander of Gulf Province, Silas Wayagure, passed away in the early hours of this morning.

A close relative of the late PPC, who did not want to be named, told Loop PNG that Wayagure died of a heart attack.

“He went to visit a cousin brother at Silo village, which is around 12 miles from Kerema town, when he collapsed.”

The late Wayagure, from Eastern Highlands Province, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Kerema General Hospital.

“The body will be flown to Port Moresby, on a Gulf Provincial Government charter, at 2pm today,” Loop was told.

The late Wayagure’s family in Port Moresby will then take charge of his funeral arrangements.

More details to follow.
