Manukau councillor aware of Killer Beez and Tribesmen meetings

From Morning Report, 7:23 am on 16 June 2022

Manukau councillor Alf Filipaina says he cannot confirm the Tribesmen and Killer Beez have agreed to a ceasefire but he was aware talks had been happening.

The New Zealand Hearld is reporting this morning peace talks were held over the weekend between senior leaders of the Tribesmen and Killer Beez, where they agreed to a truce, according to gang and police sources.

The Herald says part of the deal is that the Killer Beez are not allowed to wear their patches in Otara, the suburb of Manukau where both gangs claim a historical connection.

Filipaina spoke to Kim Hill.
