‘I will really finish all of you off,’ Duterte tells Parojinogs of Ozamiz City
President Rodrigo Duterte has warned the Parojinog clan, a political family in Ozamiz City allegedly involved in illegal drug trade, that he would annihilate them if they would not “stop threatening people” in the province.
In a speech Wednesday night for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Ozamiz Airport Modernization Project, Duterte said: “The Parojinog family, stop threatening people. I will wipe you from the face of the earth. I’m telling you.”
Duterte issued the warning after Misamis Occidental 2nd Dist. Rep. Henry Oaminal told the President that witnesses against the Parojinog clan were allegedly receiving threats.
“I will really finish all of you off, including the police. You better watch out. I’ll have you called in Manila. When you arrive at the airport, I’ll have you killed,” he also said.
The Chief Executive has ordered the return of Chief Insp. Jovie Espenido to Ozamiz City.
Espenido led the series of anti-drug operations in the province in July 2017 that killed Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog and 14 others. /kga
