Seemingly disgusted by the big tarpaulin being displayed at the Universidad de Zamboanga building showing the number of gunshot victims since January this year, Mayor Celso Lobregat the other day called on the people to support the police and the local government in the fight against criminals in the city.
“Ayuda sila nomas pone caratula. PNP tormenta nuay testigo. Hope they will realize,” Lobregat said in an interview over RMN last week. “Debe era ayuda sila y nomas pone pa ese tarpaulin alyi bitay kay makahuya na maga visita.”
Lobregat said some of the crimes perpetrated have no witness or witnesses and back-tracked their testimonies for fear of their lives which is one of the reason why the suspects are still roaming the city scot free.
It can be recalled that after the death of UZ president Archie Eustaquio III, the new management of UZ displayed a huge tarpaulin at the university’s building in downtown just facing City Hall showing the countdown of gunshot victims by in the city since January 1, 2012.
At present, in the UZ taurpulin, the number of gunshot victims reaches now to 110 and still counting.
The mayor said he hopes the UZ management will realize what they are doing is not right.
“Kuando ya muri si Archie alya pa sila ya abla kay tiene daw threat na suyu vida. Era ya abla temprano para puede toma precaucion,” Lobregat said.
