AFP CentCom anticipating
spillover of Maute terrorists

While President Rodrigo Duterte has declared martial law only in Mindanao, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, particularly the Central Command in the Visayas, is gearing up in case it will be expanded to other areas in the country.

Brig. Gen. Alan Arrojado, deputy commander of the Central Command, yesterday made the announcement as he called on Governor Roel Degamo at the Capitol and told him he was in Negros Oriental to visit the troops in the province, specifically the 79th Infantry Battalion and the 2nd Negros Island Geographical Battalion.

There is a possibility that martial law will be extended in the Visayas, based on the pronouncements made by President Duterte following his arrival from Russia. .
