BACOLOD City – Vice Mayor Ella Garcia-Yulo of Moises Padilla, Negros Occidental and husband Felix Mathias Segundo Yulo III are set to surrender today, Sept. 11, 2018.
The Yulos are subjects of an arrest warrant for illegal possession of explosives and firearms.
Both are scheduled to surrender to a town mayor but the place and time are being withheld for security reasons.
Earlier, Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Martin Diño met with the younger brother of the vice mayor at a hotel here on how to go about with the surrender of the couple.
He added that “the surrender feelers were made in Manila, so andito na ako and I am announcing na this time DILG will take cognizance at tsaka ang Volunteers against Crime and Corruption (VACC) doon sa pagsurrender ni Vice Mayor.”
The Yulos’ legal woes began when the Moises Padilla police led by Chief Inspector Allan Reloj seized grenades, guns, and suspected shabu inside the couple’s car during a police checkpoint in December 2017.
