MUST READ: A plot to assassinate Duterte

The post claims that two assassins were hired to kill Davao city Mayor and presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of




Last week I called Bong, the chief aide of Duterte, to ask him to reinforce Duterte's security because I had received a report of a plot to kill him.

The person who passed me the info appears to be reliable. I asked him for further proof either in the form of documents or a recording of the secret meeting that apparently was held to work out the details. He told me I would have them to give out to the media a few days before the elections.

I don't know if this is disinformation from the enemy camp to scare Duterte who has been mingling easily with the huge crowds that mob him. I checked with my American friends and they have heard nothing of a plot to kill Duterte. But I am not the kind to take things for granted, particularly as election tension ratches up.

My source claims two assassins have been hired at 10 million pesos apiece. The high-powered sniper rifles will be provided by PNP sympathizers.

The two assassins will be posted from different angles. A diversionary explosion will be created to immobilize the crowd and two shots will be fired aimed at Duterte's head. After the killing, the PNP will carry out the investigation and blame the killing on a drug lord.

If this plot is real, and I am waiting for proof of such a plot, I shall disseminate it to the formal and social media. But first I have to determine the authenticity of the evidence before accusing anyone. According to my source a top aide of one of Duterte's rivals was present at the meeting.

In the meantime, I am asking the Dutertistas to stay on their guard and protect their candidate. Also to share this info with everyone.
