A man was arrested by police in Malay, Aklan Tuesday night after allegedly offering P100 M to anyone who could kill President Duterte.
The suspect followed up on an earlier social media post by a high school teacher in Pangasinan offering P50 million as bounty for the head of the President.
Malay Police Station identified the suspect as Ronald Quiboyen, 40.
In a spot report, the Malay PNP said it received numerous reports of the public post of Quiboyen via social networking site Facebook that he is offering a P100-milion reward to kill Duterte.
“‘Yong 50 milyon nyo doblihin ko, gawin kung 100 milyon kung sino makapatay kay Duterte, nandito ako ngayon sa Boracay…” Quiboyen said in his Facebook post.
In a GMA News report, police launched the operation against Quiboyen at around 3 p.m and were able to locate and arrest him at Sitio Hagdan in Barangay Yapak, Malay town at 7 p.m.
Authorities easily located the suspect as he already had prior police record, Malay police chief Police Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Pablito told GMA News.
Quiboyen was turned over to CIDG-Aklan and Regional Anti-Cybercrime Unit 6 for filing of appropriate charges.
Police said Quiboyen will be facing charges for alleged violation of Art. 142 of the Revised Penal Code (Inciting to Sedition), among others. (With a report from Tara Yap)
