Bato blasts cowardly warlords for not helping in fighting Maute: Pag normal, ang tatapang, pag putukan, nawawala
Police Chief Bato Dela Rosa is blaming warlords and their private armies for the Maute group’s successful siege of Marawi City after they ran scared and did not give any support to the military during the initial encounter.
Senator JV Ejercito said dela Rosa told senators that the warlords could ave provided much needed firepower and urban war experience in fighting against Maute.
“Sabi nga ni (PNP Chief Ronald) Dela Rosa ang daming war lords dun, concerned sila sa security and all pero nung nagkagulo hindi naman they failed to protect the residents. Hindi naman nila ginamit. Asan yung mga security personnel nila? Pag normal times ang tatapang nila. Bigla na lang nawala,” said Ejercito.
“Yun din isa pinagtatakhan nila, alam naman natin na yung area na yan marami silang, sabihin na natin maraming private armies, pero nung nangyari itong kaguluhang ito bigla na lang nawala lahat,” he addded.
