ENGA police have arrested a man harbouring a murder suspect using the latest technology provided by a telecommunication company.
Provincial police commander, acting Superintendent George Kakas said the murder suspect was from Teremanda outside Wabag town.
He was harboured by a relative who had been denying to police that he did not know the whereabouts of the suspect.
Kakas said police had been urging the relative to bring the suspect to the police station. But he maintained his stand.
He said police then sought the help of Digicel to see who was communicating with the suspect.
Police found out that the relative had been in constant touch with the murder suspect.
Kakas said at one stage, the relative sent a text message to the suspect urging him not to surrender to police.
Police arrested the relative at Teremanda village on Monday.
He said the murder suspect was still on the run.
He allegedly killed student Jonah Pulu at the Institute of Business Studies in Wabag early this year.
He was from Irelya village outside Wabag town.
He said the killing almost sparked a tribal fight between the two major tribes of Wabag – the Kiso tribe living at Teremanda and Talyulu tribe living at Irelya.
