CEBU CITY — The Visayas Command (Viscom) said it will validate the information that the Japanese relayed, warning of possible terror attacks in Southeast Asia, including the Philippines.

“As far as Visayas Command is concerned, we have not received any official report regarding this matter. Yet, we will treat this information important and will validate this travel advisory issued by the Japanese government to its citizens in Southeast Asia,” Viscom said in a statement.

Viscom assured the public that it “will act accordingly once the threat is proven accurate.”

“Our main priority has always been the safety and security of the people and our communities. Our Commander, Major General Pio Diñoso III encourages everyone to be our partners in making our communities safe,” it added.

Viscom also advised the public to report to authorities any information about threat.

The public was also advised to avoid spreading unverified information.

“Let us not spread unverified information that will cause panic to the public, after all, security is a shared responsibility,” Viscom said.
