Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 78-year-old farmer yesterday morning at Nakelemoto settlement in Bua.

Alarms were raised when a 59-year-old fisherman of Koronasolo had gone to the deceased’s house to buy Fijian tobacco when he saw someone wearing a mask and holding a cane knife jump out from the main entrance and disappeared.

“Investigations continue and anyone with information regarding this incident is to contact your nearest police station or community post,” Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said.

Meanwhile, Fiji Police is urging the public to take extra precautionary measures while on roads.

This is after the recent deaths on Fiji roads of four in less than three days.

“It is no longer just the responsibility of the Police to ensure our roads are safe and all road users must now start taking ownership of their safety and the safety of others,” Naisoro said.

The road death toll currently stands at 27 compared to 26 for the same period last year.
