A mayoral candidate in Calinog, Iloilo denied his driver mauled a trisikad driver last April 19, Panay News reported.

Sangguniang Bayan member Francisco Calvo said it could be a case of mistaken identity.

Calvo added he has strict orders to his staff not to involve themselves in shenanigans.

On Good Friday, trisikad driver Edgar Lastimoso complained to the Calinog police station that he was mauled by a group of men who chased him to the town’s bus terminal in Barangay Libot.

Lastimoso claimed one of the men was a driver of Calvo but failed to identify this man.

“It was not my driver. Such claim was politically motivated to ruin my person,” Calvo said.
