Jayapura, 18/3 (Jubi) – Papua Governor Lukas Enembe said armed an attack on security personnel by  a group of armed men in Yambi Mulia, Puncak Jaya regency, was purely criminal.

“We received a report about the shooting from the Papua police chief. The Yambi group has always engaged in extortion and all that stuff. For that, they deserve to be hunted by the security forces, ” Enembe told reporters in Jayapura, Papua on Tuesday (18/3).

Security forces killed one and arrested several members of the group who attacked their patrol in Mulia last Thursday (13/3). Two members of the armed group were injured in the clash.

“They are not fighting for independence. This group’s action is purely criminal,” Enembe said.
