Quibdó: four dead and three injured in the Las Palmas neighborhood

by admin

At 10:45 in the morning today, March 3, an armed confrontation occurred between members of criminal gangs in the Las Palmas neighborhood of Quibdó. The result: four dead and three injured.

On February 25, two young people were murdered in the Kennedy neighborhood. The mayor of Quibdó, Rafael Bolaños Pino, expressed his concern about the increase in homicides in the capital of Choco so far in 2024, indicating that to date there has been an increase in this type of crime, compared to what is had reported for this same moment, in 2023.

He emphasized the need for the national government to strengthen the presence of the police with a special district for the capital of Chocó. “There is a situation of despair among citizens regarding security,” he stated.

In addition to the increase in homicides, the number of robberies has increased. In broad daylight, armed robberies have occurred in Alameda Reyes, in the heart of Quibdó. It is reported that part of the homicides have to do with confrontations between criminal gangs.

Delegates from the Petro government speak of an “absolutely positive balance,” but everything indicates that there are no encouraging results in the so-called “socio-legal dialogue table for total peace with the Quibdó gangs.”
