At least 1,000 police officers were deployed by the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) to conduct the funeral rites of late President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino 3 on Saturday.

PMGen. Vicente “Vic” Dupa Danao Jr., NCRPO chief, said Quezon City Police District (QCPD), Eastern Police District (EPD), Southern Police District (SPD) and Regional Moblie Force Battalion (RMFB) were driving the convoy from the Church of Gesu at Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) to Manila Memorial Park in Paranaque City.

The former CEO will be next to his parents, former President Corazon Aquino and Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr.

Noynoy died Thursday of kidney disease due to diabetes. He was 61.

Health protocols arising from the 2019 coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic will be enforced during the scaled-down ceremonies.
