Duterte says he ordered Loot ambush: Inambush kita animal ka
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday admitted perpetrating the ambush of former Daanbantayan mayor Vicente Loot.
Loot, a former police general, was tagged by Duterte as a protector of drug lords and syndicates in the country.
“Pumasok na talaga ang narco state. Mga mayor. Mayor Mabilog ng… General Loot. P**** i** mo nanalo pa ng barangay — mayor. Inambush (ambush) kita animal ka, buhay pa rin. General-general mo. P*****,” the President said in a speech.
“Pag-aral mo sa PMA gastos ng gobyerno. Tapos kayong mga unggoy kayo sinisira ninyo ang bayan. That’s why I said I am — if I was up against government. And so I had to say ang kalaban ko talaga — little did I realize that I was up against my own government,” he also said.
Last year, Loot and his family survived an ambush by unidentified men at his town’s wharf.
In December 2018, Duterte denied he had anything to do with the ambush and blamed former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas for the incident.
