Coffs underworld figure shooting case remains open

POLICE are re-appealing for more information to the shooting of an underworld figure.

Earlier this month Nemilote Ngata, the son of John Ibrahim's bodyguard Semi 'Tongan Sam' Ngata, was dropped off at Coffs Harbour Health Campus with shotgun wounds to his hand and shoulder.

Police have been told Ngata, 30, was around Ridge St before he was shot about 6.30pm on Saturday, February 10.

A white Holden Commodore and dark SUV were also seen in the area at the time.

Officers from Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command are appealing for the owners of those vehicles to help with inquiries.

Detectives are urging anyone who may have been in the area, or have seen the vehicles to contact Coffs Harbour Police Station on 6691 0799.
