Lamitan Mayor Rose Furigay has cautioned Lamitan city residents against the proliferation of fake news.

Furigay is especially asking parents to carefully distinguish against factual and fraudulent information to avoid panic.

Furigay made the statement after residents of two barangays reportedly panicked when reports of an impending attack circulated via text and social media.

Furigay assured residents that the local government and the authorities are on top of the situation in Lamitan.

Lamitan officials earlier expressed support for the extension of Martial Law in Mindanao.  (Allen Abastillas)
