TAGBILARAN CITY – The New Year’s celebrations in Bohol were generally peaceful according to the assessment made by the provincial police.
Sr. Supt. Angeles Geñorga Jr. said there were only four reported instances where victims sustained minor injuries. He added that there was no report of indiscriminate firing filed.
Based on reports received by officers in Camp Francisco Dagohoy, the police stations in Tagbilaran, and the towns of Clarin, Inabanga, and San Miguel reported only one incident of firecracker-related injuries each.
The same report said there was no incident of firecracker-related injuries reported during the New Year’s Eve revelries.
Despite skipping the muzzle-taping of police service firearms, there was no report of indiscriminate firing.
Geñorga thanked the local police force and the community for their support and cooperation in keeping the celebrations peaceful. (Dave Albarado)
