Every day the situation in Tuluá, Valle del Cauca becomes more tense. On February 10, there was a night of terror with the burning of vehicles, the death of a traffic guard and another seriously injured, and outrages that did not stop generating fear and anxiety in the inhabitants.
For this reason, the president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, referred to the public order situation, indicating that he will not allow himself to be ‘blackmailed’ by the actions of the criminal gangs that operate in Tuluá.
«The immaculate band has challenged society. Their bosses are in prison. We do not accept blackmail », she said through X.
In that sense, the excesses and the different acts of public order worsened when the National Police captured Mauricio Marín Silva, alias Nacho, head of the criminal group ‘La Inmaculada’, also known as ‘The Office’.
