Enga Provincial Police Commander, Superintendent George Kakas, confirmed the rumor but was not in a position to give further details into the incident.
PPC Kakas told this newsroom that he has sent police personnel to Sir Salamo's village in Tsak Valley and they are yet to return with the findings.
Sir Salamo was reportedly on his way to Wapenamanda from his village in the Tsak valley (within the same district) when he was attacked.
He was allegedly attacked with his armed body guard by a group of men from a neighboring tribe, over a sorcery related issue.
He was then taken to Kungumanda Foursquare hospital where he was treated with cuts to his arm.
More details to follow.
