Hela residents urged to maintain peace

Locals in Hela Province are urged to refrain from getting involved in tribal fights or illegal activities, which cause disruptions to Tari town and surrounding villages.

Provincial police commander, Teddy Agwi, made this comment after 16 vehicles belonging to ExxonMobil were captured at Poroma last Thursday in Southern Highlands Province.

He says people should respect each other and maintain peace and harmony in their communities.

On another note, PPC Agwi says police operations for Christmas Eve have already commenced, adding people should observe the event in its true spirit while those who misbehave will be dealt with accordingly.
