Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña said the city government will no longer fund the maintenance of police vehicles.

The Cebu politiko is currently having a word war with Cebu police over the spate of killings in the Queen City of the South.

“We’re drawing the line. From now on, all the city vehicles that are with the police, they take care of their own maintenance. I’m not going to bother with that. Siguro naman, they can afford to do that. Let them take care of their own maintenance,” Osmeña said.

“Number two, they will have to facilitate and pay for the registration of those vehicles,” he added.

But Osmeña clarified he will continue to support the police on peace and order initiatives.
