​Drivers urged to be vigilant

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi, confirmed that some reports have been filed at police stations and are being looked into.

“The number of attempted holdups and carjacking has been increasing over the start of the election period and police are dealing with it.”

He said in a recent incident, a foreigner was tailed from the airport by criminals to the outside of Somare Foundation, where he was held up.

Turi reiterates that vehicle owners should be watching out for suspicious vehicles that are either tailing or driving in front of them.
