At 15:40hrs on Tuesday 13th March 2018, one of the ten (10) new toyota land cruiser vehicles convoyed up to the Ela Motors Goroka Sales yard from Lae, ran off the road at Korofegu, along the Okuk/Highlands Highway,due to a large pot hole caused by the recent wet weather. GDSS Goroka on notice dispatched response units to the incident scene assist. The locals took control of the vehicle and demanded the company (Ela Motors) pay K5000.00 before reclaiming their vehicle. Although Police and Guard Dog Security Services were on site, nothing much could be done to sway the locals resulting in the demands met and the vehicle released. No further reports available.
