You want war I’ll Give you War: De Lima’s Witness says Duterte ordered us to bomb mosque, kill suspects


A man who claims to be a member of the Davao Death Squad (DDS) told the Senate on Thursday morning that then-Mayor-and-now-President Rodrigo Duterte ordered them to bomb a mosque and kill crime and drug suspects.

Senator Leila de Lima presented Edgar Matobato, 57, a Davao resident, at the hearing of the Senate committee on justice and human rights.

“Ang trabaho namin ay pumatay ng kriminal, drug pushers, snatcher, rapist,” said Matobato,  who  identified as a former Cafgu.

In 1993, Matobato  said they bombed a mosque  allegedly  on orders of  then-Mayor Duterte.

Among the people they allegedly killed was a certain Salik Makdum, whom he said they abducted from the Island City of Samal in 2002.

According to Motabato, they presented Makdum to then-Davao PAOCTF head-now-PNP Chief Ronald de la Rosa. He added that they then killed Makdum whom they buried in a quarry owned by a policeman.
