Iloilo City Mayor Jed Mabilog to Undergo Lifestyle Check as Ordered by Pres. Duterte


The controversial chief executive of Iloilo City, Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog will undergo a lifestyle check as ordered by no less than President Rody Duterte, due to the alleged links of the Mayor to the illegal drug trades in the City.


During one of Pres. Duterte's speech at the oath-taking of Philippine National Police star-ranked officers, Pres. Duterte was quoted as saying "I have some lifestyle check on him, his house is like a palace. And, sabi ko, anak siguro ito ng mayamang-mayaman [I said, maybe he's the son of a very rich man,]" Pres. Duterte said.

The former Davao City Mayor stated that he already asked the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to inspect Mabilog's house in Iloilo City which was described by the President as a Palace.


Pres. Duterte also revealed that Mayor Jed Mabilog has requested the Palace for a meeting after his name was included in the updated list of alleged narco-politicians. The Iloilo City Mayor has been warned by Pres. Duterte to cut any ties to suspected drug activities.

Mayor Jed Mabilog, a second degree cousin of Senator Franklin Drilon, has denied the allegations thrown at him by the President, saying that he is willing to subject himself to an investigation.

A few days ago, Pres. Duterte made a surprise announcement as he ordered the re-assignment of the bemedalled Ozamiz City Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido to Iloilo City.

PCI Espenido was responsible and the leader of the anti-drug operation that killed suspected drug lord in Misamis, Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr., of Ozamiz City. Prior to being assigned in Ozamiz, PCI Espenido was the police chief of Albuera, Leyte, where the town Mayor Rolando Espinosa was captured and later on, died in a shootout while in his jail cell.

Mayor Jed Mabilog on Monday stated during a media interview that he welcomes Espenido's re-assignment to his city. "I am hoping Chief Inspector Espenido can help us fully address our problem with illegal drugs," Mayor Mabilog said.
