Two people are in police custody for helping the escapees, Fiji Police Chief of Operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu said.
He said the two are believed to have been involved in the five inmates’ escape from the Naboro Medium Facility Monday.
“The Fiji Police are still interrogating the two suspects in custody but nothing can be revealed yet as it may jeopardise our operations,” Tudravu said.
The two ‘associates’ are said to have provided the five with food, water and other basic items for survival while on the run.
“While we are looking for Isoa Waqa, we are also investigating people who have been helping these prisoners. It is against the law to help criminal who have escaped from the prison,” Tudravu said.
