“I’m not and I was not and I will never be a ‘bata’ of anyone,” Napeñas said when he testified at the Senate probe on the Mamasapano incident, reacting to reports that he was Purisima’s lackey.

“I’m not a ‘bata’ of Purisima,” he further said.

Napeñas headed the police operation in Mamasapano, Maguindanao last January 25 where 44 members of the SAF were killed.
