Guys, it seems an epidemic in which most of the innocent Engans are victims of such clashes. It is better if the owners of the trucking companies being identified and hand those culprits involved over to police and the matter will be solved in time rather that taking the law into own hands.

Arson suspected on fuel tanker in Leron
By MADELEINE AREK
A FUEL tanker was burnt down along the Leron plains, Markham valley, after midnight yesterday.
Owners believed it was hijacked and then torched.
The fuel tanker from Lae-based Mountain Transport Ltd (MTL), owned by Ipili Porgera Investments, was reportedly returning from Mt Hagen at 2 am.
While the motives are not known, MTL general manager Maso Mangape, fearing reprisals, has put out a notice to landowners not to take the law into their own hands and disrupt services.
The fuel tanker was stopped at Arafuran village near Mutzing along the Highlands Highway by a group of men belonging to a company in Lae.
The driver was pulled over and the truck was driven for 2 km to Leron, where the trailer was detached and the tanker set on fire.
Last Monday, factions of a tribal fight in Porgera were believed to have set ablaze a trailer truck owned by a major trucking firm in Lae.
There was speculation that the torching of the fuel tanker could have been linked to the burning incident in Porgera.
