Turubu Local Level Government landowners have questioned the presence of mobile squad four in their area.
They claimed the policemen assaulted investors of the Turubu Oil Palm Project.
Provincial Police Commander Joseph Poma is not aware of the Mobile Squad Four operation and has instructed them to cease their operation.
The tussle over Turubu Oil Palm Project in the East Sepik Province is far from over.
Yesterday, the Manager of the project Godfrey Rausem, his Chairman Aron Malijiwi and President of Turubu LLG David Kausik joined forces to condemn the actions of mobile squad four on investors.
They have obtained orders from the Provincial Police Commander Chief Superintendent Joseph Poma instructing MS4 to cease its operation into the project site.
The operation is deemed illegal, as there are no proper legal and court documents in support of it.
Lawyer Herbert Wally refuted allegations by the landowners that the policemen were brought in by Yangoru Saussia MP Richard Maru to round up investors.
The project is in its advanced stage with well over 300, 000 Oil Palm trees planted.
Manager of the Project Godfrey Rausem appealed to anyone with vested interest not to interfere with the project.
He said due process was followed to develop the Sepik Plains which is now at the center of a major controversy.
According to the Provincial Forest Authority due process was followed under section 89 of the forestry Act to issue a road line timber permit to clear the forest to plant Oil Palm.
Despite resistance the project developments are optimistic the project will see full production in 2017.
