'Control anger'

POLICE are pleading with people to control their anger and resolve their differences amicably rather then resort to fighting and violence.

North police commander Acting SSP Fulori Rainibogi made the plea after a scuffle between two youths in Bua which landed one of them at the Nabouwalu Hospital with injuries.

"The offender, who is also in his mid 20s, has been taken in for questioning and charged with one count of assault while the victim has been discharged from hospital," said ASSP Rainibogi.

"We continue to plead with the public to act reasonably and refrain from using violence as a means of resolving differences."

"There has been an increase in assault cases and it is not funny the way people seem to resort to fighting, giving no value to human life."

She said most fighting arose from minor issues.
