CEBU CITY, Philippines — They never learn! Despite calls and reminders from police to not engage in illegal gambling specifically illegal cockfighting or tigbakay, there are still a lot of people who defy this appeal and violate the law on illegal cockfighting.

This developed after another batch of illegal gamblers — 8 in all — were arrested during a raid on another tigbakay or illegal cockfighting activity in Barangay Catarman, Liloan town in northern Cebu on July 26, 2020. 

The Liloan arrests came a day after 31 illegal gamblers were also arrested in Daanbantayan town in northern Cebu.
