Angel Locsin: NBI should summon Koko, not Vico


The country’s beloved “Darna” has spoken.

Actress Angel Locsin is puzzled by the National Bureau of Investigation’s (NBI) move to investigate Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto for alleged breach of government quarantine rules.

Locsin felt that Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III should be the one investigated by the NBI for the controversial protocol breach.

“Hindi ako nag mamarunong sa batas, pero sa opinyon ko, si Koko ang dapat ipatawag at hindi si Vico,” she tweeted April 1, Wednesday.

The NBI has summoned Sotto to explain his alleged violation of the Bayanihan law in relation to his insistence on the use of tricycles during the Luzon lockdown.

The government has suspended public transport but the Pasig City mayor appealed for an exemption for tricycle drivers to transport health workers in the city. When reminded to follow the quarantine measures, Sotto complied and tapped alternative transportation for the health workers.
