Senator Cynthia Villar condemned the twin bombings of the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Jolo, Sulu which killed 21 people and wounded at least 80 others last Sunday.
“This bombing which targeted innocent people as they celebrate the Sunday Mass is clearly an act of terrorism. This should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. No time should be wasted in hunting down those who are responsible for this senseless act,” Villar said.
The seasoned legislator also condoled with the loved ones of those who died and sympathized with those who were injured. Authorities added that aside from civilians, soldiers were also among those who died in the blasts.
“I fully support our government as they vow to crush those responsible for the attack. I am also praying for the safety of military personnel as they go after the perpetrators,” the veteran lawmaker said.

The lady senator also expressed concern that the bombings could be an attempt to undermine the ratification of the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL) and the creation of the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) as a measure that will bring prosperity and lasting peace in Mindanao.Share this article:
