The situation in Zamboanga Sibugay and Zamboanga  del Sur is normal and relatively peaceful after government forces overran a Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)  camp at Sitio Talaib, Payao, Zamboanga Sibugay last week.

Zamboanga del Sur Police Provincial Director Sr. Supt. Jose  Bayani L. Gucela  dislcosed that there are some some municipalities in his areas of jurisdiction where curfew hour is still in effect. They are Margosatubig, Lapuyan, Dinas and Dimataling.

Gucela said he has deactivated the  Crisis Management Committee of the Municipal Peace and Order Council on Joint Peace and Order Security Cooridnating Center.
He said that police and military forces in each of the municipality will conduct regular inspection and check up of the areas, especially on people coming in.

Meanwhile,  Gucela revealed that he has received an intelligence report that Monalisa Kapa who was kidnapped in Pitogo last month is now in Zamboanga Sibguay and his captors are demanding P20 million for her liberty.

Mrs. Kapa owns a small iceplant, a gasoline station and a fishing boat.

“We are still validating the intelligence report,” Gucela said.

“Zamboanga del Sur is generally peaceful but we are still on red alert. I appeal to the people to help government forces combat lawlessness and terrorism,” Gucela said. — Alllen Abastillas
