  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Papua's Nemangkawi Task Force consisting of military and police personnel arrested a fugitive named Kopengga Enumbi on Tuesday, August 3, 2021. 

    Papua Regional Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Ahmad Musthofa Kamal confirmed that based on the investigation result, Kopengga often fulfilled the needs of the separatist group, which was allegedly a terrorist group led by Lekagak Telenggen.

    “Kopengga Enumbi alias Tamu Enumbi is also the younger brother of Lerimayu Enumbi (KSTP Yambi terror group),” said Kamal in a written statement on Tuesday.

    During the arrest, the task force seized 11 rounds of 5.56 mm SS1 ammunition, one badik knife, one helmet, one Samsung mobile phone, cigarettes, an areca nut, and noken bag.

    Kamal said the Nemangkawi Task Force would continue to synergize and take stern action against separatists and armed criminal groups (KKB) that threaten the security and order in Papua.
