Four of the five prisoners who broke out of the Naboro Medium Corrections Facility Monday have been captured in a joint operation by Fiji Police, Fiji Military and the Fiji Corrections Services.

Solomoni Qurai, Tevita Sugu, Josaia Usumaki and Epeli Qaraniqio were apprehended by the defense forces at around 6.30pm yesterday evening at Uduya point.

The hunt continues for Isoa Waqa, 30 of Waitovu, Ovalau who is serving eight years for robbery with violence.

The forces are still trying to establish whether the five are linked to the BSP Bank robbery in Samabula on Wednesday.

"Nothing has been established as of yet in regards to the BSP robbery but we have apprehended two suspects apart from the five escapees who are still under investigations," SSP Rusiate Tudravu said.

Meanwhile, Fiji Police Force spokeswoman Ana Naisoro confirms the joint operation by the Police and Military will still continue

"It will continue till we find Isoa Waqa and the other people involved in the bank robbery," Naisoro said.

Naisoro is also urging the public to be vigilant during the weekend and report any suspicious behaviors that may lead to the escapee.
