PNP to Aklanons: Inform barangay officials, PNP on armed group's presence

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (7 May) -- Senior Police Superintendent Epifanio Bragais, Jr., Aklan Police Provincial Office (APPO) Provincial Director called on Aklanons to immediately report to their respective barangay captains and to the PNP if there are armed groups in their areas.

Bragais aired this call over a local radio station here over reports on the presence of armed men in a municipality here out to harass registered voters to support their candidates.

"If you experience threats from these armed men, identify these persons with guns, and the kind of guns they are carrying. Inform your barangay captains about this, so the APPO will can also act on this," Bragais said.

Meanwhile, Bragais mentioned that Aklan has three towns in the COMELEC's Election Watchlist of Areas (EWAS). These are the towns of Kalibo, New Washington and Lezo. Kalibo and New Washington had election-related violent incidents in the past elections while Lezo was included in the list after a grenade-throwing incident involving the residence of a councilor for Sangguniang Bayan in the town transpired two months ago.

As to gun ban violators, the APPO has since confiscated 11 firearms, nine deadly weapons and arrested 21 persons since the implementation of COMELEC Resolution No. 8714 prohibiting the carrying of firearms and deadly weapons was implemented in checkpoints in vantage areas in Aklan by the PNP.
