Calizo introduces new Task Force Oro chief


On Monday’s regular session presided over by Vice Mayor Jocelyn B. Rodriguez, the 20th City Council welcomed Col. Warren Munda, GSC, MNSA, as the new commander of Task Force Oro.

As introduced by Councilor Romeo V. Calizo, chair of the committee on public order and safety, Col. Munda hails from Butuan City and a member of PMA Class of 1995 and a classmate of Senator Antonio F. Trillanes IV, both considered as two of the Oakwood Mutineers way back in July 23, 2003.

Calizo said Munda had just graduated from the National Defense College taking up Masters in National Security Administration (MNSA) before accepting his new post.

Task Force Oro was created as a deterrent force against terrorism and to prevent and counter violent extremism and maintain the peace and order of the city in the context of security and development.

”Knowing for a fact that Cagayan de Oro is a highly-urbanized city, the AFP recognizes that there should be a force that would maintain its peace and order, the 4th Infantry Division has forged a partnership with the city for the institutionalization of the Task Force Oro. I am asking the support of the members of the City Council so we can move forward and the Task Force can perform its mandate and duties for the interest of the Cagayanons,” Col. Munda said.
