6 March 2023 - 11:02 WIB – Papua. The Armed Criminal Group (KKB) led by Egianus Kogoya committed a heinous crime by taking the life of a 8-year-old child, the 2023 Carstenz Peace Operation Task Force confirmed. The victim, identified with initials MT, is a child of the Chief of Pimbinom Village in Kuyugawe District, Lanny Jaya Regency, Papua Mountains Province.

Senior Police Superintendent Faizal Ramdhani, the Head of 2023 Carstenz Peace Operation Task Force, explained that the murdering happened a week ago during a pursuit of the KKB in the region.

Despite the language barrier, the team were able to gather important information from these witnesses, including the fact that the Kogoya group was carrying three long-barreled rifles.

“The tragic event took place because ST, the Chief of the Village, refused to provide food assistance to the Kogoya group who came to his village. In response, his 8-year-old child was killed by Kogoya himself,” he stated on Monday (6/3/23).
