PIA Press Release

Lanao Norte now generally peaceful Col. De Leon

ICC Iligan City (27 November) -- It is time for us to rebuild and consolidate our efforts so that we can proceed with development and progress for the people of Lanao del Norte.

Thus declared Col. Benito de Leon, Commander of the 4th Infantry Brigade, 1st Infantry Division (104th Bde), Philippine Army, who said that the situation in the province has now become generally peaceful.

"After three (3) months of the armed conflict, the internally displaced persons (IDP) must now have to return back to their places of origin," he said.

He said that the province is now undergoing an early recovery program to attend to the needs of the IDP's in areas affected by the said conflict.

This is one of the components of their rehabilitation considering the primary objective of the government to extend services that would alleviate their living conditions, De Leon said.

It can be recalled that several municipalities in the province were directly affected of the atrocities made by the lawless MILF group (LMG) led by the Terrorist Bravo last Aug. 18 resulting to almost 200 thousands of displaced civilian who sought shelter inside the evacuation centers.

As of presstime, however, only the IDP's of the town of Munai have not yet returned to their places of origin, despite the assurance of the military in the area that it is already safe for them to do so. (OSM-Radyo ng Bayan) [top]
