The SS2 firearms belonging to Prada Aryudi and Praka M Alif Nur, who were victims of the attacking, were seized by the perpetrators.
The Papua Police Chief, Inspector General Mathius D Fakhiri, ensured that the security forces were more alert to anticipate the act of violence in Yahukimo. Moreover, now the unknown perpetrators have firearms.
“We will pursue the perpetrator who seized two firearms carried by our two soldiers,” said Fakhiri in Jayapura, Tuesday (18/5/2021).
The security apparatus, he said, would increase vigilance in the area after the weapons seizure incident.
“The level of vigilance must be increased since they already have firearms, a new group will emerge on the name of what Kodap it is. So the confiscation of firearms justifies that he is there,” said Fakhiri.
To pursue the perpetrators, Fakhiri immediately coordinated with the Military Commander XVII / Cenderawasih Maj. Gen. Ignatius Yogo Triyono. The security forces will not be careless in pursuing the perpetrators. He did not want the personnel carrying out the chase off guard.

With the incident over there I have asked to be aware of it, so that all my friends (personnel) at a vulnerable point must be extra careful in carrying neat weapons because of that’s what this group is looking for, “said Fakhiri.
