“Our investigations indicated the prime suspect to be Lerry Mayu Telenggens of the Lekagak Telenggen KKB group. He was known to order Ali to buy him betel nut and cigarettes the previous day.”
Iqbal added that “Lerry Mayu shot and stabbed Ali to death. He has mistaken Ali to be a soldier or policeman, even though the latter approached with the items he ordered.”
The KKB’s killing of Ali is their latest concerted attack on civilians, specifically on teachers and educational facilities such as schools in the town of Beoga.
