​Mt Hagen back to normal, says Singura

The province went into a frenzy on Wednesday after the confrontation by police and the University of Papua New Guinea students in Port Moresby.

People took advantage of the situation, destroying public buildings and property in the town areas. Public transportation was stopped due to owners fearing the destruction of their vehicles. Shopping centres were on a lockdown as well.

Air Niugini flights into the province was also cancelled.

Police issues warning to settlers

PPC Jacob Singura says there has been a great increase in the number of deaths and the rate of attempted killings has also risen over the past couple of weeks.

He says he has come up with a new strategy which he believes will help minimise these numbers and that is to go down hard on families, especially those who are not from Madang but have settled themselves in the province and are harbouring suspects.

They will send the families who are hiding criminals back to their place of origin.
