0 429

Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson wants the Philippine National Police (PNP) to solve the killings in the province and Bacolod City.

Lacson made the statement following the murder of a policeman in broad daylight over the weekend.

Police Officer 1 Eric Alcosaba, 39, was shot dead by four men wearing bonnets in Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City, at about 3:50 p.m. Saturday. (

“The PNP should do more than just saying the present incident is under investigation, what about the previous incidents, don’t they have suspects?” Lacson asked.

The governor said that Negrenses expect more now than the usual reply of the police.

The chief of the police cannot just say it is still “under investigation” because many incidents like these have happened before but there was never a conclusion as to who was responsible for such criminality, he added.
