Madang Town has come to a standstill again this morning following a clash between the Madang people and the Highlanders which became worse when Sepik Communities in the Province got involve after one of them was attacked.
An anonymous source in Madang says this morning the fights began again at 4mile down to Sisiak but the Police responded quickly to stop the fight from getting worse.
The fight began yesterday between the Highlands and Madang people for reasons unknown until this morning when it got worse.
The source says this is becoming a very serious issue after reports came down from Goroka that 2 men from Sepik were killed and a woman raped and both the Sepiks and the Madang communities are requesting the Provincial Government for a permanent removal of all the Highlanders settling in Nagada and Kina Beach area.
The source said the Police have meet with the communities and have asked them to file a petition on their request and submit to the officer of the Governor but it is still unclear if they have already submitted the petition
The situation is still very tense but police are in full patrol to make sure nothing else eventuated.
The police cannot be reached to clarify on the issue. PNGFM / PNG Today
