Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
A GAUTENG man was arrested in Port Elizabeth on Friday after he allegedly opened a false hijacking case in the Eastern Cape city, police said.
Captain Sandra Janse van Rensburg said the man alleged that he had been hijacked in Springfield on Wednesday.
He said he was in the city for a wedding and had just come back from a bachelor's party when three men held him up at gunpoint and bundled him into the boot of his VW Golf GTi.
He told the police the men drove with him in the boot to Jeffreys Bay, where they stopped and assaulted him before leaving him there.
But police suspect the man got drunk at the bachelor's party and damaged his own car before claiming he was hijacked. - Sapa
