During the past few months, the former Mayor of Davao City included the Iloilo City Mayor as one of those who was included in his narco list that includes the names of hundreds of government officials from all the branches of government who are somehow involved in the illegal drug trade in the Philippines.

Although the President already mentioned the name of Mabilog on his previous expose, this is the first time that the President identified the family relationship between Mayor Jed Mabilog and Sen. Franklin Drilon. Pres. Duterte also dubbed earlier the City of Iloilo as the most "shabulized" city in the country.


During the speech of Pres. Duterte in the turnover rites of drug rehabilitation center in Davao del Norte, the President made the following statements:

“Naay mayor ug mga siyudad. Ang usa diha ig-agaw pa ni Drilon. Si Mayor Mabilog sa Iloilo City, ug daghan pa (There are city mayors. One of them is a cousin of Drilon. He is Mayor Mabilog of Iloilo City. and more),” Duterte said.

Sen. Franklin Drilon who also served previously as Justice Secretary is a member of the Liberal Party, the same party where the newly arrested Senator De Lima belong. Despite the fact that Sen. De Lima was charged in connection with her alleged involvement in the illegal drug trades some mainstream media reported that she was arrested due to her criticism against the President.
