Di lang mayor! Duterte tags Mabilog as drug lord Odicta’s protector
President Rodrigo Duterte has accused Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog of being the protector of alleged drug lord Melvin Odicta.
In an interview aired over state-run PTV-4 Friday (September 15), Duterte said deceased Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. was not the only narcopolitiko “running the show” in Visayas.
“Kaya sila Odicta, sila si… ‘yung pinoprotektahan ni Mabilog, tapos dito si Albuera,” he said.
“Dito sa eastern side, it was Albuera Mayor Espinosa who was running the show. Dito, sa ano, si Odicta. Kaya sabi, ang una ko the most shabulized, if there is a word,” he added.
Duterte previously called Iloilo City as the “most shabulized city” in the country.
Odicta and his wife were killed in August last year at a Caticlan port by an unidentified gunman.
Mabilog, who has been tagged as a narcopolitiko by Duterte several times, is currently out of the country. He claims he is seeking medical treatment.
