Duterte increases reward for ‘ninja cops’ to P5-millionPosted on
DAVAO CITY (August 20) — President Rodrigo Duterte raised the reward for “ninja Cops” from P3-million to P5-million, to any individual who could provide information on police and military officers directly involved in the illegal drug trade.
In August 2016, Duterte offered P2-million reward for the capture of “ninja cops”, but in September 2017, he raised the bounty to P3 million.
On Saturday, Duterte again raised the bounty to P5-million.
“So, the good practice maybe sa ninja cops, I will now raise the amount to P5 million per ninja cop. If you bring him to me dead, I’ll give you [P5 million], no questions asked or P3 million,” Duterte said.
Duterte also said that he would increase the bounty to P1 million a month if the ninja cops will not surrender themselves.
“Surrender within 48 hours. Kasi ‘pag hindi kayo nag-surrender, dadagdagan ko ‘yan P1 million per month,” he said.
Expressing his frustration over the persistent corruption in the government, President Duterte again warned the policemen to “shape up” as he will never tolerate abusive cops during his term.-ezc/NewsLine
