COTABATO CITY – The police and military in North Cotabato have taken steps to secure steel towers of the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines after authorities discovered Saturday an attempt to topple down the structures.
Chief Insp. Julius Malcontento, police chief of Carmen, North Cotabato, said Army bomb experts have confirmed that an improvised explosive device was used in an attempt to bring down NGCP Steel Tower No. 103 in Barangay Kitulaan.
“Based on findings, the attempt took place more than a month ago based on the corrosion in the structure,” Malcontento quoted an Army report.
He said authorities are still determining who could be possibly behind the attempt. (PNA)
