Commander Bravo assures Duterte MILF hates drugs

Dec 18, 2016 @ 18:24

Presidential Adviser on Overseas Filipino Workers and Muslim Concerns Secretary Abdullah “Dabs” Mama-o talked to Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Commander Abdullah Macapaar, also known as “Commander Bravo”, in the latter’s mountain lair in Lanao del Sur on December 10, 2016.

Bravo and his group were reported to have established their own government in Mindanao, allegedly getting payoffs from drug dealers and distributors from Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, the Visayas, and other parts of the country who had come down to Lanao to hide from the authorities.

“In line with President Duterte’s directive, I immediately sought a meeting with Commander Bravo. We held the meeting inside a mosque in his mountain hide-out in Lanao del Sur in the presence of his men. [Commander] Bravo clarifies that his operations in the MILF NWMF [Nortwestern Mindanao Front] were, in fact, in support of the President’s anti-drug war,” Mama-o saidn

According to Mama-o, Bravo said it was the drug syndicates who cooked up wrong information that reached the President to make it appear he was setting up a separate government.

“He[Bravo] said his command will continue complementing the President’s drive against the scourge of drugs. He also said that he abides by the on-going peace process between the government and the MILF,” Mama-o said.
