Police have erected check-points at strategic locations around the country in order to capture the seven prisoners who escaped from Naboro Maximum Prison today.
Chief of Operations ACP Maretino Qiolevu says they are still searching for the men as they are considered to be dangerous.
Qiolevu says Ulaiasi Qalomai, Filipe Delana, Peniasi Qalibau and Bainivalu Tuimatavesi are serving time for aggravated robbery, Josaia Usumaki is serving time for burglary and larceny while Solomoni Qurai and Mesulame Waqabaca are serving time for murder.
He says it is not yet known how the men escaped as investigations continue.
Qiolevu is urging the public to refrain from harboring any of the prisoner’s as this is an offence, and they could be taken to task.
