Gov Davide to Cebu mayors: Hire personal bodyguards
Cebu Governor Hilario Davide III said local executives should hire private bodyguards following the recent killings of two mayors and one vice mayor in Luzon.
The Cebu politiko said the reason why police security detail for local executives were recalled because the province’s police force is undermanned.
“Those who feel kinahanglan sila og personal security, then they can hire. Maybe they have to realize also nga kulang gyud og police diri sa ato,” Davide said.
He also said cops are needed to provide police presence in the field.
Tuburan Mayor Democrito Diamante, who is also League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP)-Cebu Province Chapter president, said he is alarmed with the killings.
“Kung interesan gyud ka sa imong kaatbang like nahitabo ni Mayor Halili kay sniper man ang nakapusil, dapat gyud magmatngon ka, bisan og naa kay armas kon sniper ang motira nimo dili ka kakita,” Diamante said.
