“I wish to remind all good people of Central Province not to take the law into your own hands. There is always a way to resolve problems in a peaceful manner. I would also like to sincerely thank the families of the suspects for assisting my officers.

“I would also like to thank my hard working officers who responded to the report regardless of the bad weather experienced.”
