Recently, a video posted on social media, Facebook, on February 13 was supposed to be just for fun.It shows a contest of young people who were rushing to finish their cigarettes.

Victor Dimabogti defended that he won’t tolerate any wrong activity after discovering that two of their officials were present at the illegal contest.

According to social welfare office, this competition was against the rights of children. The two officials, among those five who were caught, admitted that they were forced to do this in exchange of P100 prize whoever wins. Trinidad asked for an apology as he faced the news team. Those young people involved in the competition would undergo a counseling.

The baranggay council will prepare the case to file against Trinidad.
