Breaking: Two politicians among signatories of checks worth ₱27-M recovered from Maute hideout


The stunning discovery made by the individuals from Philippine Marines on Tuesday when they entered a abandoned hideout of the Maute Terrorist Group in Marawi City brought up issues if the gathering is supported by some enormous individuals to make confusion in Mindanao.

Davao Breaking News, a nearby news outlet in Mindanao uncovered that no less than two previous chairmen of Lanao del Sur were among the signatories of the recouped checks worth ₱27-M from the Maute fear monger gathering.

The news outlet didn’t stated the place in Lanao Del Sur where the two politicians served as mayors.

Their sources identified the two politicians who signed some of the recovered cheques that might became an evidence that the group got a support from influential people in Mindanao.



The news outlet didn’t revealed the names of the two politicians until the investigation is conducted.

Cash and cheques were recovered by the marines inside a vault stored in a house near Mapandi bridge.



The shocking discovery might became an evidence to the claims of President Rodrigo Duterte that some ‘narco-politicians’ were connected to the local terrorist group to disturb the peace and order of the government as revenge to the war against illegal drugs that destroyed their shabu business.

President Rodrigo Duterte claimed on Friday that illegal drug trade fuels local terrorist groups’ activities in Mindanao.

“Hinayaan kasi natin ang droga . So there was a time and until now that the terrorism activities in the Philippines is funded and fueled by drug money,” Duterte said.
