Bato bares NPA’s plan to embarrass Duterte with pre-SONA attacks in Davao City
Police Chief Bato Dela Rosa revealed that communist rebels have plans to conduct attacks President Rodrigo Duterte’s home turf, Davao City., to put him in a bad light before his State of the Nation Address on July 24.
Dela Rosa said that the Philippine National Police has detected plans of the New People’s Army (NPA) to conduct pre-SONA attacks in Davao City as part of their efforts to embarrass the President.
But dela Rosa assured the public that the PNP was on top of the situation as it has taken appropriate security measures to prevent this from happening.
Aside from NPA attacks, dela Rosa said no other threats were detected for Duterte’s 2nd SONA at the Batasan next Monday.
