EMC STATEMENT: Jolo Blasts No Direct Threat in Eastern Mindanao

The recent explosions in Jolo, Sulu, which claimed the lives of soldiers and innocent civilians on August 24, 2020, had no direct threat in Eastern Mindanao. However, we assure the public that the Eastern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) and its ground units will remain vigilant and in full alert.

Eastmincom Commander, Lt. Gen Jose Faustino Jr. has already directed the Commanders of line units to ramp up their security operations to prevent the possible spillover of the incident in different areas within Eastern Mindanao.

The Command is also working closely with its adjacent military units and law enforcement agencies, especially with the Philippine National Police (PNP), to stay on top of the situation to ensure the maximum safety of the public.

We also urge the public to be vigilant and to immediately report to the authorities any suspicious individuals or activities in their area. It is at this moment that all of us need to be security-conscious and that we need to uphold even more our culture of security.

Rest assured that the safety of everyone is our primary concern.
