There is no cause to merit an imposition of curfew in Zamboanga following the declaration of Martial Law by President Rodrigo Duterte.

This was the statement of Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco amid inquiries on whether a curfew will be imposed following the Martial Law declaration last week.

The inquiries also followed moves by some barangays to declare a curfew in their respective areas.

City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer Dr Elmier Apolinario confirmed that some barangays have imposed curfew in their localities.

Apolinario however said that this is in response to the clamor of residents and not necessarily from officials of the barangay.

Apolinario said that residents themselves secure themselves by refraining from going out come nighttime.  (LAJ)
