Jayapura – Papua Police Chief Inspector General Pol. Mathius Fakhiri asked members of the National Police not to be provoked by the interference of the Armed Criminal Group (KKB) in Paro District, Nduga Regency, Mountainous Papua.
”The distance from Paro District and Kenyam District is very far so we ask the police chiefs not to chase the KKB because that would be very risky,” said the Regional Police Chief as quoted by Antara, Friday (1/12/23).
According to the Regional Police Chief, the shooting case by the KKB at the TNI Post in Paro District which resulted in the death of two TNI members was not an attack but did occur as a disturbance.
“If it is said that the TNI Post was attacked, it was not actually, but there was disturbance,” said Inspector General Pol. Fakhiri.
Thus, his party appealed to the security forces not to be provoked but to remain vigilant and ensure that disturbances from the KKB do not happen again.
“For this reason, all members must increase security so that interference from the KKB can be suppressed,” said Inspector General Pol. Fakhiri.
The Regional Police Chief added that his party would continue to take law enforcement steps and it was hoped that members of the National Police and TNI who were on duty in the area could arrest KKB members, including networks from groups that were at odds with the ideology of the Republic of Indonesia.
“Because many KKB members have been arrested, it is hoped that this can be developed so that in the future all their networks can be known,” explained the Regional Police Chief.
