Where’s Jaro Iloilo Exactly?

"Napatay si Prevendido sa distrito ng Jaro sa Iloilo at hindi sa Iloilo City." (Prevendido was killed in the District of Jaro in Iloilo, and not in Iloilo City.”)
This was the statement of Police Chief Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa said during an interview with a media outlet, just a few hours ago. And as expected, Ilonggo netizens bore mixed reactions regarding the statement. Some were amused, others were laughing, while some were annoyed, and criticized the police chief for stating wrong information.
However, it isn’t the first time we’ve heard such gaffe in Ilonggo geography. We’ve experienced it several times and have to correct this kind of information. We couldn’t blame them, especially those who are unfamiliar with the places and where they are located here.
