However, he was shot in the right leg , disabling his escape.

Kamboli and five other individuals were apprehended at the scene. He is wanted for a series of armed robberies and breaking and entering and stealing (BES) within Rabaul, including the major armed robberies of John Jay Seeto and Rabaul Hotel late last year and earlier this year.

Kamboli is now undergoing treatment at the emergency bay at Nonga under tight security .

Meanwhile, the five other individuals will be processed by CID Rabaul. A Major Incident Brief (MIB) will be submitted in due course.

The combined efforts of the law enforcement agencies were applauded for  demonstrating their commitment to bringing criminals to justice and ensuring the safety of the community.
