Chief Bato cancelled his appointments in Marawi City amidst the on going war against the Maute terrorist group after he heard a statement from Justice chief Vitaliano Aguire that illegal drug trade came back and SAF troopers were involved.

"Nandito ako ngayon, kinansela ko lahat ng appointments ko sa Marawi kase ito ay  napaka seryosong bagay.," said Bato.

The PNP chief said he doesn't believe the allegations however he need to make it sure because it can damage the whole PNP.

"Hindi naman sa naniniwala ako agad sa alegasyon. Look at me straight to the eye, lalaki sa lalaki, meron ba? If masira ang SAF, sira na ang PNP dahil kayo lang inaasahan ko. Wala ng ibang miyembro ng kapulisan na hindi puwedeng ma-corrupt kundi kayo," he added.

Bato also said that if this is true, he will deal with them accordingl even thought it will hurt him.

"I'm willing to go to jail with you kung totoong nagtatrabaho lang kayo ng matino. Pero kung malaman kong kayo gumawa ng kalokohan, akomismo magpapakulong sa inyo."

According to dela Rosa, an investigation will be conducted tobe fair with the accuser and the accused.
