Konga investigations still ongoing

The case on the shooting of the former BDA chairman, late Fred Konga, is still ongoing.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi, recently told Loop PNG that there have not been any new developments and that the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) is still working on it.

He said more information is needed as it is not an easy case.

“People are hiding their tracks,” he stated.

Turi said police are slowly recuperating information and should be able to produce a full investigative report on Konga’s shooting in the coming weeks.

Described by police as an execution style shooting, the late Konga was driving along the Freeway towards Hohola on the morning of the 24th of August when he was shot.

Konga’s body was taken to his home province to be laid to rest at Romunga Village in Jiwaka Province on the 7th of September.

Loop PNG’s attempts to get latest updates from police and the office of the Metropolitan Superintendent were unsuccessful.
