Folks, this is a sad, sad day for Enga! I am deeply shocked to read of my kauan's senseless slaying. John Kopiyo, my paternal grandmother's cousin of the Aipyap tribe in Wabag was a respected village councillor and Pastor of the Christian Apostolic Fellowship church based in Sakales (Wabag).
How could these murderers overlook the issues affecting local citizens and take the life of another fellow concerned Engan and leader?! I condemn this killing and pray all those responsible are given the full brunt of the law and justice. So much for a change in attitude and respect for others of higher public stature! I wonder where Enga is coming to?!


Killing of councillor sparks riot in Wabag

By ANDREW ALPHONSE
THE killing of a councillor in Wabag town yesterday sparked a riot with tribesmen seizing vehicles and equipment belonging to a company working on the town’s water supply.
Enga acting provincial police commander Senior Insp Albert Beli said John Kopiyo, who is also board chairman of Wabag Primary School, died after he was allegedly attacked by workmen working on the Wabag town water project.
Insp Beli said the councillor had gone to the site to express his disagreement over the way in which water pipes were being laid over a piece of land.
An argument developed and the workers allegedly attacked Kopiyo, seriously injuring him.
He was taken to the Wabag Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Angered by news of his death, Kopiyo’s relatives ran riot in town, attacking the workers and seizing vehicles belonging to the Chinese company that is involved in the upgrade work.
An all-out riot in town was prevented by quick police intervention.

Kaim MR

Thanks for the condolence message! However as this is a public forum, might I ask that you mind the vulgar language? I would greatly appreciate this..
