"SUMUNOD KAYO AT KAYO ANG ISUSUNOD KO" Presdient Duterte to Parojinog's Supporters

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday warned the supporters of the Parojinog family against continuing the allegedly illegal activities of the once-powerful Ozamiz City clan.



"Tingnan mo, narco-politics. Tingnan mo kung anong magawa ng isang pamilya, hinawakan niya ang isang siyudad. Ang mga tao dito, ‘yung nakatikim sa kanyang patronage, pulitika, trabaho, 'yan, paiyak-iyak kayo. Sumunod kayo at kayong isusunod ko," he said.
Supporters of the Parojinogs have condemned the raids that killed the Parojinog patriarch, his wife Susan, brother and Misamis Occidental board member Octavio, and sister Mona and 12 others. 
Mayor Parojinog was among the local officials Duterte has linked to illegal drugs. Before him, two other mayors accused of having drug links were killed in police operations.
Duterte believes the Parojinogs were not innocent, saying he has now made it his vow to end the narcotics trade in the city.
Duterte, in Ozamiz City, said that if anyone—regardless of position in the local government—is killed in the drug war, it’s because of his order to destroy the apparatus and the organization of drug syndicates.
"Hindi ko hintuan ‘to. Hindi na ako hihinto dito," he said.


The President, however, assured Ozamiz City residents that he would get rid of narco-politics in their city.
"Ito lang ang—pumunta ako dito just to assure you at kayong mga taga-Ozamiz, nakatikim na kayo ng narco-politics. It is here to stay for a while. I hope that I can get rid of it before I go out of my office. Sana lang naman maabutan ko,” he said.
The President also recalled how Ozamiz has become the power base of notorious crime groups such as the Kuratong Baleleng Gang and Ozamiz robbery group, which was blamed for the 2008 robbery-massacre at a branch of Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation in Cabuyao, Laguna as well as other mall robberies.
The leader of the Ozamiz robbery group, convict Herbert Colanggo, is reportedly in a relationship with Nova Princess.
Amid questions into the conduct of the raids, the Philippine National Police (PNP) Internal Affairs Service has initiated an investigation into the Ozamiz raids. Senators Leila de Lima and Risa Hontiveros have meanwhile called for a legislative inquiry, saying circumstances surrounding the raids were suspicious.
