TNI Commander General Andika Perkasa responds to the attack by the Armed Criminal Group ( KKB ) in Yahukimo Regency, Papua , on Saturday (20/11/2021) morning.

A soldier from the Territorial Apparatus BKO Unit (Apter) of the Suru-Suru Preparatory Koramil in Yahukimo Regency, Papua, Sergeant Ari Baskoro, died as a result of the attack.  According to General Andika Perkasa, the attack did not surprise him. He will also prepare steps to deal with the group led by Tendius Gwijangge.  

“What is clear is that yesterday was also not something that surprised me. Frankly not. Because we have also observed,” said Andika during a visit to the Indonesian Navy Headquarters on Jalan Cilangkap Raya, Monday (11/22/2021).

In accordance with his promise during the fit and proper test before becoming TNI Commander, Andika will not use a war approach in handling Papua. He stressed that the stability of Papua was his main focus. Therefore, he will try to use a different approach to the KKB in Papua.

“We have to take a different approach so I hope it will also be more effective,” he said. Andika also said that currently they are still focusing on orientation to find out more about their duties and functions as TNI commander.

“Meanwhile, I will also orient the internal units, including the handling of operations throughout Indonesia,” he said.
