The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has arrested one of Papua’s most popular and controversial figures, governor Lukas Enembe, who had been on the commission’s radar for months after he failed to appear for a summons in relation to a bribery investigation.

Lukas was reportedly having lunch in a restaurant in Jayapura on Tuesday when several KPK investigators apprehended him. He was temporarily held at the National Police Mobile Brigade detention center in Kotaraja, Papua, before being flown to Jakarta from Jayapura’s Sentani airport.

The KPK named Lukas a suspect in a bribery case in September of last year for allegedly accepting a Rp 1 billion (US$64,384) bribe from a private party.
