"There are around 50 people we are evacuating at the request of the coordinator there," Emil said - so Ridwan Kamil was called.
Based on the data that Emil obtained, there were approximately 500 West Java residents living in Papua and 50 of them asked to be sent home immediately because they did not have a place to live. According to him, residents who want to return to West Java incidentally are mothers and children.
"Their families want to go home first because the place can not be inhabited because of fire. However, so far there have been no casualties and not to anyone," he said.
Emil also said, the pattern of handling the repatriation of West Java residents from Wamena would be carried out like returning West Java residents from Palu when a natural disaster occurred last year.
