Arrest Orders Now Out for Narco-Politicians Behind ISIS-Maute Group

Pres. Rody Duterte confirmed earlier that narco-politicians are behind the terrorist group, ISIS-Maute, due to the fact that the attack in Marawi in Marawi was clearly well-organized with the much needed logistical supports.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines stated during an interview with some media groups that they are now ready to conduct arrest operations against suspected drug personalities linked with the Maute Group.

The Philippine President pronounced during a speech that the Maute borthers have been using drug money to bankroll their goal to make Marawi City and the rest of Mindanao as part of an Islamic State (IS) caliphate.

According to AFP spokesman Gen. Restituto Padilla, there has been an approved list that indicates identified personalities that need to be arrested, but he refused to divulge the names for security reasons.

Gen. Padilla also said that once the Marawi conflict is finally over, the military will shift its focus to hunting down individuals or groups who may have supported the Maute gunmen and their foreign cohorts in attacking Marawi City.

The AFP also noted that they will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the sources of high-powered firearms used by the ISIS-Maute group. Some of the firearms came from government security forces they captured, but it looks that they have also stockpiled for some time as they AFP seized a lot of those firearms.

The military leadership are also not discounting the possibility that some of these high-powered weapons came from rogue members of the uniformed services.

Based upon the initial reports there were talks that aside from the IS backers in the Middle East, key personalities in Mindanao supportive of the Mautes have provided the terrorists with logistical supports.

Pres. Duterte declared Martial Law in the entire island of Mindanao last May 23, following the breakout of hostilities in Marawi City. He also suspended the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus.
