The Anglican Church of Melanesia announced today that a member of the Melanesian Brotherhood (Solomon Islands) in Popondetta, Oro Province, Papua New Guinea has been murdered.

Br Tolbon Diwaero was killed late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning by unidentified persons on his way back to Domara Household, the Church reported via Facebook.

Br Kelliot Betu, Regional Secretary of the Papua New Guinea  Melanesian Brotherhood Region said that it appeared Br Diwaero was “mistakenly murdered” as he passed a village where there was a clash between two groups. Further details about the incident are unknown at present.

The Church is asking for prayer for members of Papua New Guinea Brotherhood.
