CEBU CITY, Philippines – The National Bureau of Investigation in Central Visayas (NBI-7) has placed under custody another netizen from Cebu on Thursday, May 14, 2020, for allegedly posting threats and offering a bounty to anyone who can kill President Rodrigo Duterte.

Law enforcers from NBI-7 located Dether Pajartine Japal, a security guard from Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan Island, Cebu, who reportedly surrendered before them past 7 a.m. on Thursday.

Initial investigations from NBI-7 showed that Japal had posted on his Facebook account an offer of P20,000 to those who can kill the president.

“F*** you, Dutae. I’ll shoot you in the face with a gun. We lost our jobs because of you. If I meet you up close, I’ll shoot you right away. And I have a reward. It’s P20,000 for anyone who can kill that m**********!” read a screenshot of Japal’s post in Cebuano.

Law enforcers around the country have rounded up several netizens for allegedly making threats against the President.
