THE continuing threat of terrorism is no cause for alarm, Camp Alagar’s spokesman said.
Police Regional Office spokesman Supt. Surki Sereñas assured the residents of Northern Mindanao that they are on top of the situation.
Sereñas added that they have deployed their personnel to thwart any terroristic activities in Region 10.
“We have seen how the PNP make security preparations,” Sereñas said.
He pointed out that they have did not mind receiving flak from their conduct of checkpoints across the region which have contributed to the traffic woes of Cagayan de Oro.
Sereñas explained that they would not mind if the city streets get congested as long as no terrorist could slip through their checkpoints.
“This is just very sad but there are some incidents that we cannot really prevent,” he said.
The Alagar spokesman enjoined residents of the city to continue supporting the police in its campaign against terrorism.
Sereñas cited the support of civilians which aided in defeating the Maute Group in Marawi City.
For his part, Cagayan de Oro City Police Office spokesman Supt. Mardy Hortillosa said that they too have ironed out their security plan for the city in an event of a terroristic attack.
Hortillosa said their security plan is in consideration to City Police Director Supt. Nelson Aganon’s adage: “Everyday is a threat day.”
“Gina-expect nato na kay aron pud mahatag nato ang the best nga security measures,” he said.
He explained that they expect a terrorist threat every day so they will always prepared.
“Kay kon mi-ingon tag normal ang atong threat level, na magelax na ni-ana ang atong mga police personel,” said Hortillosa.
