Kili said although the suspect has evaded arrest, police have gathered all his details and will continue to follow-up until his arrest.

He warned that the raid is a caution to whosoever is brewing and producing kwaso wherever in and around Auki town.

Kili said a number of kwaso hotspots is known in and around Auki and they will get there in a matter of time.

He also called on communities to take-up similar initiative to what Fiu community did by working together with police to combat crimes in communities.
