Zamboanga city councilors have passed a resolution during their regular session yesterday to investigate the escape of 16 detainees of the Tetuan Police Station.

The resolution also called for the City Engineer to conduct an inspection of the Tetuan Police Station detention cell together with officials and personnel of the Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO).

“Alarming ito.  Klaro ang lapses ng ating security forces,” said Councilor Josephine Pareja, Chairman of the Council Committee on Peace and Order.

Pareja accompanied one of the escapees back to the Tetuan Police Station after the latter surrendered to her yesterday.

Pareja also wants the construction of a new prison facility in barangay Talisayan fast tracked.  (RGAAGo)
