The Fiji Police Force is requesting members of the public to be patient over the next 24 hours especially as they are conducting operations on recapturing the five escapees.
Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said their main priority is at this stage is to recapture the five escapees and as such road blocks will be erected especially during peak hours when the opportunity may rise for these escapees to move out of Central and Southern Division.
She also added that this may cause some inconvenience as the forces operations team have been tasked to recapture the five over the next 24 hours.
“We are once again requesting members of the public and in particular family members and relatives not to harbour these five and to come forward with any information that could lead to their arrest,” Naisoro added.
The five are serving sentences for serious crimes and we are therefore requesting members of the public to take note of this advisory seriously.
