All these happened due to allegations of sorcery between clansmen from Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province.
NCD metropolitan superintendent, Commander Ben Turi, told Loop PNG that the incident was a spillover from last Thursday.
“A young man climbed a tree during a bird hunting trip last week, when he fell to his death,” Turi said.
“The Gorokas from Garden Hills claimed that it was the work of sanguma. They then went to ATS and burnt the other group of Marawakas’ haus kuks.”
