ENB police to hunt for local gangs

The known suspects have been terrorising locals in the Kunakunai ward and neighbouring villages of Ravat, Tinganalom, Ngatur Turagunan and Tanaka.

Acting ENB Provincial Police Commander, Chief Inspector Gabriel Bundy, said the suspects should surrender before they are hunted by police, as it will only lead to injuries or death.

“The ring leader, Jack Bilak, has been arrested and charged and is currently at the Kerevat Correctional Institution. So, this is a big call out to them to surrender now, or the law will get them, whether alive or dead,” Bundy said.
