The Manila Police District has recommended that no bags should be brought into the Quiapo Church by churchgoers, as part of the heightened security measure following the deadly terror attack that killed more than 20 people in Jolo, Sulu over the weekend.
According to Supt. Julius Caesar Domingo, station commander of MPD Station 3, bringing bags is not necessary when attending a mass, just like any other religion.
However, he said the management of the Quiapo church has yet to approve their recommendation.
Domingo clarified that there were no threats on the Quaipo district but he said that it is better to be cautious and prepared.
The Philippine National Police is on “heightened alert” after the terror attacks in Mindanao.
Domingo said that they will add more police in the area for the anticipated influx of people every Friday.
