“ISIS Presence in Tuguegarao Not True”: NOLCOM

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan – Major Ericson Bulusan, Spokesperson of North Luzon Command, Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) confirms that the presence of the terrorist group in the city is a hoax.

Recently, there has been series of text messages spreading that there are members of the terrorist group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) present in Tuguegarao. They were suspected to be in one of the hotels within the city. However, according to Bulusan, the text message was a tool to create panic and fear by an unidentified group. The source of the text message is confirmed to be non-ISIS related.

Moreover, based on the CCTV footage of the hotel, it shows that there are no sightings of any members of ISIS. The Philippine National Police and AFP are still extending their surveillance operations in order to maximize security in the city.

Furthermore, Rocma Birus, an Arabic teacher and treasurer of the Muslim Association of Tuguegarao City  expects that the celebration of the AFI Festival 2019 will be as peaceful as they also celebrate Eid Al-Adha. northernforum.net
