MANILA, Philippines—Investigation showed that convicted felon Rolito Go was abducted last month, according to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.

De Lima said the findings of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the NBI both yielded the same conclusion that Go was abducted.

“The findings of the PNP and the NBI that the abduction really happened have matched so far,” De Lima told reporters in an interview at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) headquarters Friday morning.

De Lima met on Friday with NBI and PNP officials investigating Go’s abduction at the NBI headquarters.

She added that although they may have concluded that Go was indeed abducted from the New Bilibid Prison minimum security on Aug. 4, they have yet to come up with the suspects and their motives and its mastermind.

“We will still investigate who were abductors, their motive and the mastermind,” she said.

She also said investigators have talked to witnesses who saw Go inside the church inside the minimum security prison at the time he was reported to have been seen in a casino.

“There are witnesses who confirmed Go was inside the Ina ng Awa church at the NBP reservation on the day he was supposedly abducted,” she said.

“So he could not be in a casino at that time. If there were sightings like that, it might be in previous occasions,” De Lima explained.

A source at the NBI told Inquirer that NBP priest Fr. Robert Olaguer and another inmate had given statements that they saw Go inside the church.

The source, who asked not to be named for lack of authority to speak on the subject, also said the statement of Go was also validated through the footage of a closed circuit television camera along Susana Heights and in Alabang and Laguna.
