BULUAN, Maguindanao – The Mangudadatu political clan of Maguindanao have expressed alarm over the statement issued by United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) presidential aspirant Jejomar Binay that the evidence against suspects in the 2009 Maguindanao massacre was weak, giving Sajid Ampatuan to post bail.Ibrahim Jong” Mangudadatu, former Buluan mayor and brother of Maguindanao Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu, was alarmed by Binay statement as he endorsed the candidacy of Sajid Ampatuan for the mayoral post of Shariff Aguak in Maguindanao. What evidence was he talking about?” Mangudadatu asked. Ang lakas at malinaw ang mga ebidensya sa Maguindanao massacre tapos asasabihin ni Binay na mahina, paano na lang if manalo siya? Ano pa ba ang hinihintay natin yong manalo si Binay at makalabas ang mga Ampatuan, nakakatakot,” he added.Mangudadatu said he was alarmed by Binay’s pronouncement.
He and several relatives are supporting presidential candidate Mayor Rody Duterte.
Duterte was the guest of honor and speaker of the 80th foundation of Buluan which he visited Saturday.
Other elected officials belonging to Mangudadatu clan are allies of administration standard bearer Mar Roxas. They are Gov. Mangudadatu, Rep. Sajid Mangudadatu of Maguindanao’s 2nd district, Assemblyman Khadaffy Mangudadatu of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and Mayor Freddie Mangudadatu of Mangudadatu town.
He explained that his support for Duterte was personal in nature since the Davao mayor was his close friend and only him has good vision for Maguindanao in particular and Mindanao as a whole.
Mangudadatu recalled that Duterte told him in the aftermath of Maguindanao massacre to help find missing journalists.
He asked me to help find your colleagues until I found them in a shallow grave in Sitio Masalay, Barangay Salman, Ampatuan town, the engine of back hoe was still running when I reached the site,” he added.
Mangudadatu also recalled having with Binay and Duterte in a commercial plane bound for Davao. He quoted Binay as telling him to run for ARMM governor under UNA.
