B / Gen. Vega arrives in Bohol to lead security preparations for Duterte’s visit
Regional Police Office (PRO) 7 Director Brig. General Roque Eduardo Vega arrived in Bohol to personally lead security preparations for President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to the province on Friday.
Bohol Provincial Police Office spokesman Lt. Col. Joseph Berondo said Vega arrived at 9 a.m. and headed straight for the BPPO headquarters at Camp Francisco Dagohoy in the town of Tagbilaran.
Vega was also due to pay a courtesy visit to Governor Art Yap at the Capitol.
According to Berondo, security forces are already stationed in key areas and more will be deployed on Friday.
“Sugod nana sila pero dili pa na tana, in fact kang RD [regional director] pa na ugma mo daghan pa na ”, he declared.
The police force also began to coordinate with the Presidential Security Group in implementing the security plan for the president.
Duterte will travel to Bohol for the first time since the pandemic erupted in the country in early 2020 to lead the simultaneous inauguration of seven port development projects in the province, estimated at a total of 7.2 billion pesos.
Duterte will arrive at Bohol Panglao International Airport on Panglao Island at an undetermined time.
The president will then be airlifted from Panglao to the tourist port of Tagbilaran city for the simultaneous inauguration at 4 p.m. (R. Tutas)
