A prisoner who escaped from Hu’atolitolu prison has been arrested on Hihifo Rd at Fatai after three days on the run.
Vaha Afimeimo’unga, 41, escaped on Tuesday 26 December.
Police reiterated their message to anyone who is found to have been harbouring Afimeimo’unga that they could face prosecution.
As Kaniva News reported yesterday, the authorities believed the prisoner was hiding around at the Lavengamālie College area.
Sangastar Saulala from the school said prison guards had informed him about the incident.
Responding to a post by Saulala on Facebook reporting the incident, a Facebook user by the name Vaha Jr Leka claimed he was the prisoner.
He said he fled the prison after he was allegedly abused by some prison officials.
He said he feared his life after he was allegedly put together with some enemies in the same prison unit.
The prison authority could not be reached for comment.
