President Rodrigo Duterte disclosed on Tuesday that he was the one who ordered the controversial ambush of Vicente Loot, a former mayor of Daanbantayan, Cebu.
KAMI learned that the said politician and his family were ambushed last year, causing the injury of their helper, a wharf porter, and 2 drivers.
During the oath-taking of new government officials in Malacañang, the head of state cursed at the ex-mayor, and he also admitted that he was behind the ambush.
"General Loot, p… mo, nanalo pa na mayor,” President Duterte stated.
“Inambush kita, animal ka, buhay pa rin," he added.

It can be remembered that the President tagged former Mayor Loot as one of the 5 “narco generals” in the country, but the politician firmly denied the accusation.
When the ambush happened, PRRD denied that he was involved in the incident, and he even cited Mar Roxas as the person behind the attack.
“Loot was ambushed twice but could not be killed. I did not order the ambush. It was Roxas,” President Duterte said in jest.
"Roxas ordered his ambush, not me,” he added.
In a previous article by KAMI, President Duterte slammed Vice President Leni Robredo for opposing his statement on “gift policy” for cops.
President Rodrigo Duterte is the current President of the Philippines. He won via a wide margin during the 2016 Presidential elections.
