CITY OF MEYCAUAYAN—Another social media post brought trouble to its author, a 27-year-old man who on Facebook said in apparent jest that he would want to see enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) checkpoints blown up.

The man, Abram Jacob Vibar, was arrested on Tuesday (May 12) for complaining on Facebook about having a difficult time getting past checkpoints to deliver LPG, which was his job.


“These checkpoints are something else,” Vibar’s post read. “Let me give you an LPG gas then blow them up. They’re obstacles to my delivery schedules, haha,” read his post.

Police said Vibar tried to cross the checkpoint at the village of Lawa past 8 a.m. but without a quarantine pass.


Vibar was charged with online grave threats and disobeying persons in authority.
