Navesau Students Recognised For Assisting Police With Arrest

Nine students of Navesau Adventist High School were part of a group recognised for assisting Police with the arrest of the 22-year-old charged with aggravated robbery, assault, damaging property and common nuisance after erecting an illegal roadblock near Navesau last month.

Also part of the nine is 19-year-old McVeigh Mainu from Papua New Guinea who along with eight of his fellow students assisted efforts that led to the successful arrest of the accused who went into hiding and was arrested the day after.

Mainu and fellow Year 12 student Simione Waqa who was also injured in the incident said they ran after the accused and gave chase as he fled into nearby bushes.

They said other students tried their best to run after the accused but had to withdraw after they were allegedly pelted with stones.

Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said the Fiji Police Force was proud of all their efforts.

He said it is encouraging to see the young generation doing the right thing and actively playing a proactive role in addressing criminal activities.
