All Saints’ and All Souls’ days in Kalinga peaceful – Kalinga police

Tabuk City, Kalinga – The province was generally peaceful, and no crowding was observed during the All Saints’ and All Souls’ days, says Kalinga Police Provincial Director.

The closure of both public and private cemeteries, including memorial parks, was ordered by Governor Ferdinand Tubban from October 29 to November 2 in order to prevent gatherings that may result in the possible spread of Covid-19.

In a phone interview, Police Colonel Davy Vicente Limmong informed that pursuant to the order, the police had been deployed to the different cemeteries and during the said period, no one among the constituents had violated the order.

“Sinmurot da met amin piman. Awan met iti nakita tayo a nag-violate or crowding ken dagitoy sementeryo,” he said, adding that the people already went to visit their departed love ones before the closure of cemeteries and some went to churches to light candles instead.

Limmong recalled that last year, since it is the first time the public cannot visit their loved ones on All Saints’ and All Souls’ days, some individuals still tried to go to the cemeteries but were sent home.

Meanwhile, as for public order and safety, the Kalinga police provincial director said that it is generally peaceful in the province.

“Naging peaceful met, awan iti incident tayo a recorded especially on crime, awan … since October 29 inggana November 2,” he said.
