The observance of Undas 2018 in Palawan province was without any untoward incident and was “generally peaceful,” according to the Provincial Police Office (PPO).
Senior Superintendent Gabriel Lopez, provincial police director, said his office has not received any untoward incident in cemeteries in the province on November 1 and 2.
“Wala naman tayong reported incidents, peaceful naman. Wala rin tayong natanggap na report na may lumabag sa mga batas na ipinapatupad natin ngayong Undas,” he said.
Lopez added that the observance of All Souls’ Day was the same as last year, peaceful and without any incident that is contrary to the peace and order being sustained.
Over 700 police personnel were deployed to cemeteries and other vital areas in the province-wide to ensure the observance will be safe and secure, he said.
“Nakikinig naman ang mamayan natin dito. Halos the same lang last year kasi wala rin naman tayong naitalang mga insidente,” Lopez said.
