No Terrorists!

CAMP ALFREDO BANTUG – Due to the growing rumors circulating in the community and also in social media on alleged sightings of suspected terrorists in some parts of the province, the Southern Leyte Provincial Police (SLPPO) appealed to the public to stop making or sharing fake news regarding a supposed terror threat which might cause panic and fear to tourists and residents.

Police Senior Superintendent Warren De Leon confirmed recently that the reports claiming that armed men have been spotted in the towns of Malitbog, Macrohon and Maasin City are unsubstantiated and should be considered as hoax or fake news.

“We request the public to remain calm and ask them to be vigilant and observant,” De Leon said.

But as a precaution, the police director still urged the public to inform their local police if there are new faces or unidentified persons doing suspicious acts in their respective barangays. “They might be the persons being hunted in Bohol,” De Leon added.

The PNP chief also said he had ordered tighter security and police visibility in all strategic areas to monitor any anticipated terrorists’ courses of action. “The PNP are exerting all our efforts to secure all places,” De Leon ended. (By: DAHLIA ABIERA ORIT)
