According to a report by Radyo Inquirer 990AM, the authorities named the suspect as Bambaran Bantog. The alleged assassin was brought to the police station by the soldier who was guarding the office.

In a report by Pilipino Star Ngayon, the suspect admitted that his agenda was to assassin the President and the former aide. The authorities have been trying to convince the suspect to tell them the mastermind of the assassination plot.

Bantog is set to face charges of illegal possession of firearms, deadly weapon, and violation of gun ban during the election period.

In a previous report by KAMI, Go addressed the issues regarding him using the government’s fund for his campaign. He said that Filipinos should not vote for him if proven that he was using the taxpayers' money.

Go has been serving as the personal aide of President Duterte since 1998. He was assigned as the SAP of Duterte back in 2016. However, he resigned to run as a senator in the upcoming elections.
