Madang admin prepares to repatriate slain teacher

Preparations are underway by the Madang administration to repatriate the body of the slain teacher back to Ialibu in Southern Highlands Province.

The deceased was killed at Bau Primary School on Tuesday, April 3.

Madang Governor Peter Yama, who was in Port Moresby attending Parliament, flew back to the province on Thursday (April 12) to attend to the situation.

Upon arrival, Yama held various meetings with leaders from the area and asked them to return the head of the slain teacher.

The head was returned late Thursday night to the provincial administration staff, including Governor Yama.

The Governor has applauded the police and leaders in Madang who have worked tirelessly to restore normalcy in the province.

He further said police will get to the bottom of the killing.
