Two appear in court after hand grenade, shot gun photos shared on Facebook

    Two men appeared before a Magistrate this morning jointly charged with various offences including possession of prohibited weapons and hand grenades.

    The men had been arrested last week after photos of them holding firearms and what appeared to be grenades were posted on Facebook.

    The photographs showed the duo holding two shotguns, and several items including what appeared to be tele-radios.

    Andre Manu, 50, from Fo’ui and Malu Fakauho, 39, from Kolovai were ordered by the Magistrate to reappear in court on March 25.

    Police reportedly said last week Manu and Fakauho did not hold license to carry any of these firearms.
