President Rodrigo Duterte has dangled a gorgeous reward for the seize of Ozamiz City councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parojinog, the brother of Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. who died in a police raid in July.
In a speech on the 11th founding anniversary of the Eastern Mindanao Command in Davao City Friday (September 1), Duterte linked the Parojinogs to the death of 4 policemen in Ozamiz City.
“Kaya itong si Ardot, the remaining — ito ‘yung g***, place him in your arrow,” he mentioned. “I’m increasing the number — the money, the reward money on his head by P5 million.”
“Kaya kung wala na kayong magawa — off-duty — mag suri-suri kayo sa bukid. Hunting-in ninyo ‘yan. That’s P5 million,” Duterte added.
The President mentioned he is keen to pardon an confederate of Ardot so long as he brings the councilor’s head.
“Five million. Totoo. I do not care if he is really a complicit of Ardot. Kung kasama niya, dadalhin niya ‘yung ulo, abswelto ko na siya,” he mentioned.
Ardot has been included in Ozamiz City’s “most wanted” listing by a gaggle of involved residents. The Department of Justice additionally issued an immigration lookout bulletin kind him.
Mayor Parojinog, in the meantime, was tagged as a narcopolitiko by Duterte. He died when a shootout ensued at his home because the police was about to serve a search warrant.
