Kavieng boat drifts to Manus

Provincial Police Commander, chief inspector David Yapu, met with them on Saturday, November 6th, on Nauna Island.

The survivors from Emirau Island, in the Murat LLG, travelled to Kavieng on October 26th when they encountered an issue with their engine.

“They drifted out at sea for five days and the current pushed them back to Manus waters and they finally ended up at one of the small islands at Nauna, in the Rapatona LLG,” said PPC Yapu.

PPC Yapu met with one of the survivors, Nedley Leban, and spoke to him about the ordeal.
