Guari LLG has been a hive for lawlessness in the last 30 years. This lawlessness reached its peak when the local priest was murdered. The late priest Fr Jerry Mario from Givena village of the Guari LLG served as a catholic priest for the Kamulai Mission until his untimely death on May 24, 2014, when he was shot dead at close range. He was a victim of the payback killing that has been continuing over the years.

More than 30 individuals lives has been lost over the span of 20 years.
If any justice was served on the murders and perpetrators, its unknown whoever whatever justice was served obviously was never sufficient and satisfactory.
