Electricity in Marawi almost fully restored —Palace

By: Inquirer.net May 27,2017 - 11:08 PM

Ninety-five percent of electricity service in the terror-stricken Marawi City has been restored, Malacañang announced on Saturday.

Allaying fears over reports that Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative (Lasureco) compound had been occupied by the Maute bandits, Malacañang assured that the government had secured Lasureco and had almost fully restored electricity in the province.

“The government, through its Inter-Agency Task Force on Securing Energy Facilities, has secured the Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative compound.

(The) National Electrification Administration and Lasureco have reported that 95 percent of electricity service has been restored in Marawi,” Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said in a statement.

“This development should allay fears stirred by alarmist and untrue reports of Lasureco coming under attack,” Abella said.

The Palace official also told the media to be more discerning in reporting information from the ground that can easily be misinterpreted by the public.

“Given the gravity of the situation in Marawi City, we urge the public to remain calm and not to spread unverified or incomplete news items, even as we urge media practitioners not to report such items that can easily be misinterpreted or sensationalized,” he added.
