Military and police commanders in Negros Oriental assured Wednesday that the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police in the province remain united despite perceived “animosity” between them after the Mamasapano debacle.
The commanders gave their assurance as the country commemorated the 29th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986 that toppled the Marcos dictatorship, during a Unity Walk attended by AFP and PNP officials in Metro Manila Wednesday morning.
