DAVAO CITY – Davao City is facing threats from international terror group ISIS, according to Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte.

Duterte, currently the acting mayor after her sister Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, took an official leave of absence, told reporters on Thursday, that he has ordered the police and military to beef up security and intensify intelligence gathering to avert possible attacks from the international terror group.


He said he has gathered information about the whereabouts of the group but refused to elaborate.

He said the information must still be validated.


“We are intensifying the gathering of information. We cannot disclose details or confirm anything as of yet,” he said.

Duterte said that he has already coordinated with the city’s anti-terrorism group– the Task Force Davao — the Davao City Police Office, and the military’s Eastern Mindanao Command to gather more information about the threat.  SFM
