Police investigate damage incident in Makira-Ulawa province

POLICE in Kirakira in the Makira-Ulawa province are investigating an alleged unlawful damage incident which occurred at Ulahu Village, Ugi Island on April 3, 2018.

“It was alleged that a group of drunken youth damaged two tents that are used as temporary classrooms for students at Ulahu Extension School,” says Provincial Police Commander, Makira Ulawa Province, Superintendent Peter Sitai.

“There are about 30 – 40 early childhood students attending the extension school and those tents were donated to the school by the National Disaster Management office (NDMO) after the school buildings collapsed during the 2016 earth quake.

“This incident has victimised these young children from their education, and I want to make a call to the people of Ulahu to come forward with information that may assist Police in their investigation into the matter.”

Police in Kirakira can be contacted through phone 50299.
