Taxis and buses in the city of Port Moresby, as a mark of respect for the murder of one of their colleagues in the Central province yesterday, staged a convoy around the city to pay their respects.
According to the Second in Charge (2IC) of National Capital District (NCD) traffic police, Inspector Patrick Lepo, the public transport operators were supposed to meet at the Kone Tigers oval at Waigani, but that has not happened yet.
Inspector Lepo also said that the taxis and Public Motor Vehicles (PMV) seem to be operating normally today despite the convoy that was staged during the morning period. A look around the city by PNG Hausbung this afternoon also confirmed that statement from the Inspector that all taxis and PMVs were on the road doing their normal business.
Meanwhile, the alleged murder of the taxi driver took place just outside of the city of Port Moresby at the Boera village area, just a couple of meters away from the PNG LNG plant site.
It was alleged that the vehicle (Taxi) was found at another location and the body of the driver at another location within the large Boera area.
Police are continuing the investigation to put together what actually happened and hopefully generate some leads to the potential suspects involved in the killing of the taxi driver.
