Duterte claims Parojinog ruled Ozamiz because they killed their enemies

Preident Rodrigo Duterte claimed Ozamiz City has been under the Parojinog family since Mayor Andong Sr. managed to kill those who tried to oppose them.

In his speech at Edsa Shangri-La, Wednesdat, Duterte said elections practically do not happen in Ozamiz because people are scared of running against the Parojinogs.

"Sonong negosyante ang taga-Ozamiz dito? Alam ninyo. Alam ninyong walang eleksyon doon kase yung mga kalaban, binabaon doon," said Duterte.

On the other hand, the President exclaimed he has never killed of his political enemies, including former House Speaker Prospero Nograles.

He even shared some trivia about the late mayor since he know him personally.

"He used to go to Davao. Ang paborito niya yung may basketball team siya. And he wants his team to play most of the time and he goes to Davao just to maghamon ng laro," said Duterte.

Andong and 14 others were killed in a bloody raid conducted by Region 10 Criminal Investigation and Detection Group last July 30.

The police defended they were forced to shoot at the mayor and his companions in the process of serving a search warrant because the latter's security team fired at them first.

Meanwhile, Parojinog's daughter Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Nova Princess is now detained at Philippine National Police Custodial Center.
