The good news is that the Police apprehended 23-year-old prisoner, Alema Leleiga, last evening.

Members of the public spotted him in town and they reported him to Police right away. He was arrested and taken back to Tafa’igata. Leleiga had escaped from prison on Thursday.

Prison Media Officer, Sagaga Galu Frost, told the Weekend Observer that the escaped prisoner was not dangerous to the public.

He is serving time at Tafa’igata for theft as a servant.

Leleiga had apparently escaped from Tafa’igata while out with other prisoners doing labour work.

“I don’t know why they keep on escaping,” Sagaga said.

“The food and water is good because those are the basic needs for the person’s daily needs, the labour work takes only one to two hours.”

Prior to the prisoner being caught, Sagaga urged members of the public to contact Police or Tafa’igata if they see the escaped prisoner.

Last night, they did.

Sagaga told the Weekend Observer that the Leleiga escaped from prison and went to his family.

Tafa’igata Prison has a small rock and wire fence surrounding it.
