NCD urban safety officials not recognized by police

The Supt Ops reiterated this following much discrimination and criticism from the public after countless incidences involving the NCD urban safety officials.

 The superintendent operations said such cases were a result of Urban safety men wearing police uniforms to perform their duties; sometimes in very inappropriate ways.

Tundu said there has also been public discrimination against police, even on social media – where they are criticized for many of the actions they did not perform.

Execution style killing

Describing the incident as an execution, NCD Metropolitan police commander, Ben Turi says that Konga was followed by his killers in two separate vehicles.

At around 1am, Konga was driving along the Freeway towards Hohola where he resides, when he was shot.

Initial reports say that the victim was tailed by a White 5 Door Toyota Landcruiser from the Tunnel peel off behind the Stop and Shop Waigani Central side route, then cut off by a Green 5th element Ute in front of the Hastings Deering area.
