The League of Provinces of the Philippines, represented by the country’s 81 governors, strongly condemned the ambush and attempt on the life of one of its members, Lanao del Sur Gov.
Mamintal Alonto Adiong.

Adiong and a member of his staff survived the ambush on 17 February 2023, but killed four of his four police escorts.

The League unanimously approved a resolution during it’s 3rd General Assembly on 18 February 2023, calling out the ambush as a “disservice not only to the people of Lanao del Sur, but to the entire nation.”

His colleagues wished Gov. Adiong and those who were hurt fast recovery, and expressed condolence to the families of the four fatalities.

On the other hand, they emphasized that the violence committed against Gov. Adiong, “is also a violence committed against the safety of all Provincial Governors.” ###
