Escaped prisoners remain on the run
Two escaped prisoners, considered extremely dangerous, are still on the run.
The Police are urging members of the public to look out for Aniseko Vaelei and Uili Manuleleua.
Contacted for a comment yesterday, Samoa Prisons and Corrections Services Deputy Commissioner Ulugia Niuia Aumua said the men who escaped on Wednesday are still on the run.
Ulugia told the Samoa Observer that they are working with the Police.
The two men were among four inmates who escaped from the Tafa’igata Prison, which included Lauititi Tualima and Vaioa Solia. The men have been accused of breaking in and attacking a family at Ululoloa.
It’s unclear how the inmates escaped.
In the meantime, Ulugia has called on members of the public to offer their assistance in the search of the escaped.
Police Superintendent and Media Spokesperson, Auapaau Logoitino Filipo, reminded the public not to approach the prisoners directly because they are considered aggressive and dangerous, but instead immediately call police if they’re sighted.
“The S.P.S. would like to ensure the public that their safety is our priority and the police are working round-the-clock to capture the remaining escaped prisoners."
“Furthermore, please remain calm and stay vigilant and call 911 or 22222 immediately for any suspicious activity.”
