In light of the recent prison break at the Buiebi Correctional Service (CS) facility in Southern Highlands Province, the Provincial Police Commander (PPC) is now appealing to the public to be cautious when out and about doing their daily chores.
The Police have reasons to believe that the inmates are still within the province’s vicinity and are working tirelessly to investigate and perform road checkpoints searching for these escaped convicts.
” These inmates are now believed to be armed as well and also dangerous,” said the PPC.
PPC Puri is appealing to the people to practice caution when moving around, especially where the escape occurred.
He wants women and girls to move around in groups and people to report any suspicious person or people to police right away.
The PPC also confirmed this morning that out of 47 inmates, 4 were shot dead in the attempt of escaping from Buiebi CS facility, leaving 43 still on the run.
Most of these escapees are convicted criminals who have committed very serious offences and were locked up before they escaped on Sunday 27th August.
