Wala nang curfew sa GenSan! But ‘No ID, No Entry’ policy, other precautions remain – LGU
The General Santos City Crisis Management Committee (CMC) chaired by Mayor Ronnel Rivera has lifted the curfew in the city.
This was contained in the CMC Resolution No. 2, series of 2018 dated October 4 on the motion of the local chief executive, which was unanimously concurred by the City Council, the local government said.
The curfew was implemented in the city following the improvised bomb explosion at Crossing Makar in Barangay Apopong on September 16, resulting to the injury of eight individuals, including a 6-year old girl.
Prior to the CMC resolution, the curfew hours in the barangays were from 10:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m., while in the central business districts of Gensan, from 12:00 midnight up to 4:00 a.m.
The implementation of “No ID, No Entry Policy” in all checkpoints, thorough vehicle inspection within the designated checkpoints and choke points in the city, and sustained police visibility continues.
The local government also urged the private establishments to heighten coordination with the police and Joint Task Force Gensan regarding their security concerns.
“The public is encouraged to continue to be vigilant and to report all suspicious people, objects, and activities to their barangay offices/officials and public safety agencies,” the city government said.
