Negrenses yesterday were of the opinion that there is no need to declare martial law in the Visayas.
They were reacting to the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte that after declaring martial law in Mindanao, he was considering also imposing martial law in the Visayas, because this region is very close to Mindanao.
Negros Occidental ViceGov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said “I see no reason to declare a state of martial law in the Visayas. After the incident in Bohol, the military has declared that the last ASG (Abu Sayyaf Group) member who entered the area has been neutralized. Even Gen. Jon Aying, in his TV interview, assured the Negrense that there is no threat in the region.”
