Waigani PSC Inspector Jerry Yawa

Discharged firearm in toilet allegedly led to breakout

NCD metropolitan superintendent Ben Turi told Loop PNG today that a police officer discharged a firearm in the toilet on Saturday morning.

“We are not sure whether he did that on purpose or it was an accident,” said Turi.

However, the incident allegedly led to the breakout of prisoners.

Among the 15 were a few rapists, some remandees, murder and robbery suspects.

To date, 5 of the prisoners are back in their cells while the rest are still out there, Turi stated.
