MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Dionardo Carlos ordered the Police Regional Office in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao to further investigate the bombing of a transmission tower of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

“The investigation will establish what really transpired. We are also coordinating with NGCP and other possible witnesses of the bombing incident,” Carlos said in a statement on Saturday.

He added that the police force is strongly denouncing the “terroristic act.”

“The PNP understands that this incident will further burden the public as service interruption of power supply is inevitable,” the PNP chief said.
