Narvik Aguirre said his security, Senior Inspector Ricaredo Sarmiento Marasigan, thought someone threw something at his vehicle while he was driving.
“He only learned that the vehicle was shot when he arrived at my house. He said the left headlight was damaged,” Aguirre said over the phone.
The justice secretary said Marasigan already reported the incident to the police.
When asked if the attack was a warning to him, Aguirre dismissed it, saying he was only doing his job.
Aguirre is currently in Cagayan De Oro on a speaking engagement
