Pres. Duterte to Visit Lanao Despite Security Threat After PSG Ambush


President Rody Rodrigo confirmed that the scheduled visit to Lanao del Sur will push through despite the potential danger may happened after 7 members of the Presidential Security Group (PSG), who were members of his advanced party were ambushed by alleged members of the Maute Group.



According to Pres. Duterte he will visit the province to boost the morale of the soldiers fighting against the terrorist group.

During the inauguration of the Mega Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Center in Nueva Ecija on November 29, 2016, the President confirmed that he will push through with the visit.

The President was already informed of what happened to the members of the PSG in Mindanao, but he didn't hesitate to continue his planned visit.

During his speech in Nueva Ecija, Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "Yung advance party ko (sa Mindanao), na-ambush pa kanina. Tinamaan ng IED."

Despite the suggestions by some officers to postponed the visit, the President refused. He also stated that "There's trouble in Mindanao. It is within control. But I have to go there tomorrow." Pres. Duterte said.

Pres. Duterte also said that he's ready for a little gunfight against the rebels and jokingly said the he needs a little exercise and if something happened to him, there is "gentle" Leni Robredo to takeover his position.
