A man who was wounded in a secret love affair knifing was never dead but he’s alive and getting medical treatment at Helena Goldie Hospital in the Western Prince.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Western Province, Chief Superintendent Mathias Lenialu clarifying the story said, “I would like to put some information right for us that the victim of the case in this report was not dead as reported earlier. The victim is still at Helena Goldie Hospital and on medical treatment.”
Lenialu made the explanation after what he described as a misleading report in one of the newspapers claiming that the man had already died.
“We must be very careful when reporting on sensitive matters. Make sure your source must be reliable and responsible for what has been provided for publication,” he said.
The wounding incident has happened at one of the Islands in the lagoon near Kinamara Village, Vona Vona Lagoon in Western Province recently when the suspect became jealous of his secret lover’s husband and wounded him with a knife. As a result, the victim had received multiple wounds on his body.
Lenialu says on Tuesday 29 November 2022, Noro Police did arrest the defendant in relation to the wounding incident and brought to Noro police station, where he was formally arrested and placed in police custody.
“Police dealt with the suspect and charged him with the offence of act intended to Cause Grievous Harm Contrary to Section 224 of Penal Code.”
“The suspect was remanded at Gizo Correctional Facility while investigation is still continuing,” says Lenialu.
