MANILA, Philippines — After he received a stern warning from the Philippine National Police (PNP), broadcaster Erwin Tulfo has coordinated with the police for the surrender of his firearms.

PNP spokesman Col. Bernard Banac yesterday said Tulfo, through a representative, has informed the police Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) about the surrender of his guns.

“Nakipag-ugnayan ang kampo ni Erwin Tulfo sa pamunuan ng FEO,” Banac said in a news briefing at Camp Crame in Quezon City.

PNP chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde on Monday warned Tulfo they would take the necessary action if he would not surrender his guns after his license to own and possess firearms (LTOPF) expired on March 3.

FEO director Gen. Valeriano de Leon said Tulfo’s camp informed them Monday night about the broadcaster’s decision to surrender his firearms.

“His camp has coordinated on his intention to surrender the firearms when he returns in the country,” he said in a text message.

Tulfo is currently out of the country to attend the wedding of one of his children, De Leon said.

Banac said they will be forced to apply for a search warrant if Tulfo would not give up his guns.
