Army detachment


BRGY. CANLUSONG, EB Magalona – The proposed re-establishment of a military outpost in this hinterland barangay, where a spate of killings had taken place recently, got overwhelming support from barangay officials and residents, who admitted yesterday to be alarmed by the series of murder incidents in recent weeks.

This remote barangay, which is about 35 kilometers away from the town proper, was also reported by Army soldiers stationed in nearby Brgy. San Isidro, as one of the “rest-and-recreation areas” of the New People’s Army in northern Negros.

Canlusong Brgy. Capt. Merriam Porras said yesterday that the re-establishment of a military outpost in the barangay, will address the security concerns raised by her constituents, during a dialog with Mayor David Albert Lacson, who came with military, police and municipal officials.moremoremore
