Chan orders arrest of individuals who vandalized Datu Lapulapu decals
MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – Just three days after these were lighted, Datu Lapulapu decals that are plastered on the pillars of the viaduct of the Marcelo Fernan Bridge were already vandalized.
The destruction of the decals was reported to the office of Lapu-Lapu Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan early Wednesday morning, April 7, 2021.
Chan has expressed his disappointment on the incident as he also called on Oponganons to provide him with information on individuals who are responsible for vandalizing the decals so they can be arrested and sanctioned.
“Ato usab ipasubay sa atong mga CCTV cameras sa syudad para atong masikop ning mga badlongon sa katilingban. Akong siguraduhon nga mahatagan gayud og angay nga silot ning maong mga indbidwal,” said in a Facebook post.
(We are also reviewing our CCTV recordings to locate these misfits. I will make sure that these individuals will be meted the appropriate sanctions.)
The decals were lighted on Sunday to signify the official start of the month-long celebration of the 500-year of Christianity or the Quincentennial commemorations in the city.

“Bag-o lang gani nato gipahigayon ang lighting niini pag miaging Domingo og pila lang ka adlaw ang milabay, yano rang gibugal-bugalan ang gihagoan sa atong mga gipangtahasan nga mo-install niini. Dili ako kadawat nga adunay mga indibidwal nga walay kaikog ang nakabuhat niini,” Chan said.
(We just held the lighting of these last Sunday and just days later, there are already those who mock these decals that were installed by hardworking people. I cannot believe that there are individuals who would do this.)
