Misamis Oriental exec taps military to man checkpoints

CAGAYAN DE ORO — Provincial Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano on Wednesday tapped the Army's 58th Infantry Battalion (58IB) to man the security checkpoints of the province's east and western districts here.
Emano made the formal request to Lt. Col. Francis Carandang, the commander of the Claveria - based 58IB in Misamis Oriental, to conduct the security checkpoint in the towns of Magsaysay in the province's east district and in the town of Luga-it in the province's west district.
The town of Magsaysay is the bordering town of Misamis Oriental and Agusan Del Norte in the east district, while Lugait is the bordering town of Misamis Oriental and Lanao Del Norte in the west district.
After the request, Emano extended a P100,000 meal allowance intended for 10 government troops who would be assigned at the military checkpoints.
Each army personnel assigned at the checkpoints would get P10,000 monthly meal allowance.
"While there is no immediate threat to the peace and order of Misamis Oriental, the installation of the army checkpoints would serve as deterrent, particularly among terror groups who intend to sow terror in the province," Emano said.
The checkpoints would also double as agricultural quarantine of the provincial agricultural department, he said.
Emano said that he made the request because the provincial government and the provincial police command could not provide round-the-clock personnel to man the checkpoints in the east and west districts of the province. (PNA)
