After the death of the Ozamis City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog and 14 others in the recent drug raid conducted by CIDG, many suspected that it has something to do with their political connections.

University of Sto. Tomas alumnus, Mark Lopez, went back to as far as the start of presidential race to analyze the links of this story to the slain Mayor’s past involvement on drugs after Parojinog was named by Duterte as one of the narco-politicians. Read his full post below.
Fact check: In the presidential race, Duterte lost in five (5) Mindanao provinces out of of 27.
These five provinces are Misamis Occidental, Camiguin, Agusan del Sur, Zamboanga Del Norte and Zamboanga del Sur.
It was Mar Roxas of the LP who won in these provinces, except for Zamboanga del Sur, which went to Grace Poe.
Duterte also lost in four (4) cities in Mindanao, out of 33.
The four are Lamitan (Basilan), Bayugan (Agusan del Sur), Tangub (Misamis Occidental) and .... Ozamiz City, also in Misamis Occidental.
In all of these four cities, Mar Roxas was the winner.
Now why am I bringing this up?
Today, a dynasty in Ozamiz city with strong ties to narcotics, kidnapping, bank robberies and other heinous crimes were swept and felled down in a daring and SEAL-team like raid by the PNP.
It has been said that this family has lorded it over in Ozamiz, and has made this city a major drug distribution haven in Mindanao. It should also be noted that this is the family who started the infamous Kuratong Baleleng crime syndicate.
Again, Mar Roxas and the LP won in Ozamiz, which is just one of four Mindanao cities out of 33 where Duterte lost.
Do I still need to say "connect the dot?"
Or is it clear?
(UPDATE as of 11:43 pm -- Consistently, in all five provinces and four cities mentioned here, except for Zamboanga del Sur, Leni Robredo also won as the VP. Marcos won in Zambo del Sur)#GalawangDilawan
