Tasahe residents warned to stay clear of UXO cordoned area

THE Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Team of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) will be conducting a Render Safe Procedure (RSP) in the Solomon Power (SIEA) residential area at Tasahe in West Honiara between 8am to 2pm tomorrow 1 August 2018.

Officer In-Charge of the EOD Team, Inspector Clifford Tunuki says, “This task is in relation to a report of unexploded ordnance (UXO) that has been found recently by members of the community living there.

“The UXO is fitted with a Mechanical Time Fuse and is unsafe to move.

“The purpose of the RSP is to safely knock-off the sensitive fusing elements of the UXO only.

“This must be done before the UXO can be safely transported to Hells Point East of Honiara.

“The EOD Team is therefore appealing to people living in and around the Solomon Power residential area at Tasahe to keep out from the cordoned area from now and until the operation has been completed.”
