Zubiri condemns Davao bombing Condoles with families of victims

General Santos City. - Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri condemns the Friday night bombing in Davao City which according to latest police reports resulted to 14 deaths and 67 wounded. Zubiri said, "I condemn in the strongest possible terms the Friday night bombing in Davao City. Whoever perpetrated this dastardly act should be hunted and held accountable before our courts. I call on our police and other law enforcement agencies to exert relentless efforts in the investigation of the incident. I condole with the families of victims and let us offer prayers to the wounded for their speedy recovery."

Zubiri who was in General Santos City after attending a Tuna Congress at the time of the bombing also said, "We should, however, remain calm but vigilant and conduct our normal daily lives. Let us refrain from spreading unverified information, especially in social media, that will slow down pursuit of the criminals and even endanger witnesses. The soul-less criminals who did this bombing want to sow fear and terror among our citizens and are trying to derail the gains of the Duterte administration in its war on drugs and its recent offensives against the Abu Sayyaf. We should not let them prevail."
