Police Regional Office-10 (PRO-10) regional director PCSupt. Timoteo Pacleb on Tuesday ordered all PNP units to strengthen security and step up target hardening measures across the region after the bloody IED explosion in Lamitan, Basilan.
Pacleb, however, assured the public that government security forces in Northern Mindanao are on top of the situation and ready to respond to unlikely crisis. “The strengthening of security is just a proactive measure to preempt adverse incidents in the coming days or months. There is really no cause for alarm,” he said.
“Let us just all be vigilant by reporting dubious personalities or suspicious activities happening in your surroundings,” PRO-10 spokesperson PSupt. Surki Sereñas advised.
“Although no report of imminent threat has been monitored as of late, we cannot really discount possibilities. Hence, we must always be vigilant,” he said.
