George Bayagau

Infamous criminal seen during bold attack on police

Milne Bay provincial police commander (PPC), George Bayagau, told Loop PNG that he clearly saw Baker in a helmet and body armour when they entered the barracks at around 7pm.

β€œHe was dressed like one of the Defence (personnel) and he was the man behind all the instructions,” said Bayagau.

Bayagau and his four officers were evidently outnumbered when around 20 to 50 criminals started a gunfight with them, which lasted for three hours with a number of injuries on both sides.

Residents urged to act responsibly

Acting provincial police commander, George Bayagau, says he expects them to observe the law whilst celebrating.

β€œI will have police currently on operation to monitor the town and the province as well and if anything arises, we are prepared to deal with them according to law.”

The province, famous for its beautiful islands and peace-loving people, has been making headlines for the wrong reasons.
