The mayor of CDO and local members of the police force smashed a total of 52 illegal videoke machines in an effort to rid the city of the noise problems.
Mayor Oscar Moreno and his men smashed the machines after the weekly flag-raising ceremony at city hall.
Police said they brought the machines to city hall after Moreno ordered an “all-out war” against the illegal operations in various barangays around the city.
The CDO police have warned residents that they will confiscate any illegal machine as they intend to step up the campaign even further.
“This is a continuing effort, and so expected nga madugangan pa kining 52 ka unit nga atong gi-destroy. Ma-o man ang mando ni Mayor Moreno,” Olaguera said.
