Aquino on top of Cagayan de Oro bombing probe, says Roxas
MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III is on top of the investigation that seeks to unmask the people behind the Cagayan de Oro bombing last July 26, Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas told a Senate hearing on Wednesday.
Roxas said no less than the President has been monitoring the developments, citing the two recent meetings held by the security clusters.
“He (Aquino) is really on top and he makes sure that everything is being done to solve this problem,” Roxas said in Filipino in his opening statement during the hearing of the Senate committee on public order and dangerous drugs.
Roxas said their investigation into the powerful explosion in Cagayan de Oro City that left eight people dead has not been completed.
And while they have their own speculations on the attack, he said, they would not make it public yet so the perpetrators could not escape.
