Cebu City, Philippines – All 329 police officers from the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO -7) who were deployed in Mindanao are safe.
In a press conference held Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Chief Superintendent Debold Sinas, director of the PRO-7, guaranteed that the troops assigned to Lanao del Norte weren’t affected with the recent explosions there.
On Tuesday, February 5, grenade blasts were reported in the towns of Lala, Kauswagan, and Sultan Naga Dimaporo.
“Walay casualty sa PRO-7 troops. Ilahang base sa PRO-7, layo ra sa kung aha nahitabo,” said Sinas.
