DAVAO City — At least five armed men allegedly entered a school compound over the weekend without seeking permission from teachers.
Angelito Asperin, a teacher of Mindanao Interfaith Services Foundation Inc. (MISFI) Academy, said he saw five men roaming around the school’s compound in San Miguel, Indangan last Saturday. The compound houses a day care center and the office of the MISFI organization.
A police blotter regarding the incident, labeled “Incident No. PPO5-17-1131,” showed tt was filed at the Buhangin Police Station on Sept. 17.
But Senior Insp. Jonathan Calubag of Buhangin Police Station said they could not find the said report on their records.
Despite that, the news brought fear among teachers and students at MISFI Academy, as they say the armed men probably came with a malicious intent.
The executive director of the organization that operates the school, Percenita Sanchez, said the armed men did not bother to ask permission from teachers and staff workers even if they were visible at the area.
“If it was a legitimate operation they should have presented us with a search warrant,” Sanchez said.
She added that the armed men might plant evidences against them, charging them with “trumped-up” cases.
Also, they were told by witnesses that the armed men were riding police patrol vehicles when they came. (davaotoday.com)
