Face to face: Duterte tells mayors he’d kill them if he finds out they’re drug protectors
President Duterte threatened mayors that he would kill those involved in illegal drug operations or have them killed by their own police escorts during his first meeting with the local executives in Malacanang on Wednesday (Jan. 11, 2017).
Duterte told mayors from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao that he would order narco-mayors shot dead once his list was validated by authorities.
Sources privy to the meeting said the President expressed his anger over narco-politicians for destroying the country.
He was so mad that he was unable to restrain from cursing in the middle of his speech to the mayors, whom he met in batches based on geographical locations.
“The President minced no words in telling us that he is really serious about his drug war and the message came across to all those present,” one of the mayors said in an interview.
