Ginusto niya yan! Duterte says Odicta to blame for his own death


Businessman Melvin Odicta practically asked for his death when he decided to enter the illegal drug trade, President Rodrigo Duterte said.

Speaking in Catbalogan City Monday (August 29), Duterte appeared nonchalant when told that Odicta and his wife were shot dead earlier in the day.

He said their death is none of his business because Odicta is a drug lord.

“That is not my problem. He is wanted and he’s the number one drug lord. Talagang drug lord ito,” Duterte said.

“So I cannot say anything, good or bad. Wala ako. Kasi ‘yan ang pinili niya eh,” he added.

The President accused Odicta of “corrupting everybody,” including governors in the Visayas.

He said the businessman was so addled by drugs that he was already “dysfunctional.”

‘Yang Odicta was really being hunted sa Iloilo. Siya ‘yan number 1. Inabot talaga siya ng malas. Sinong gustong sumunod dito kay Odicta? Bakante ngayon. Patay na raw,” Duterte said.

Odicta is reportedly the drug lord who goes by the alias “Dragon” in crime rings.
