At least eight banners with slogans against the Governor of Sinaloa, Mario López Valdez, were hanged on bridges early Monday in several different cities.
The messages made reference to an alleged meeting López Valdez had with narco-trafficker Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, in which he allegedly asked the politician to clean up the northern part of Sinaloa so he could move about in the region as well as provide him with information.
In the banners they also accuse the General of the Ninth Military Zone of supporting the police in Sinaloa, who are at the orders of "El Chapo" Guzman.
Three of the banners were located in the capital of Sinaloa, one of them on the bridge Soriana Zapata, located on the Boulevard Emiliano Zapata in the neighborhood of Lomas del Bulevar, another at a pedestrian bridge over Club de Leones, and one in Puente Negro Bridge on Niños Héroes Boulevard.
Police also found banners hanging from the bridges over the road Millán and 16 de Septiembre at the intersection of International Mexico Highway 15, in the City of Guasave.
One more was found in Sinaloa de Leyva and two more in front of a school in El Fuerte, where classes were suspended for fear of violence.
