With discernible frustration towards law enforcers involved in the relentless illegal drug trade, President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday, has called on rouge cops to surrender within 48 hours as he is adamant to raise the bounty of up to P5 Million for every DEAD ‘Ninja’ Cop.

The President made the announcement during his profanity - laced speech during his oath – taking as member of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) at the SMX Convention Center here at SM Lanang Premiere at Davao City.


The said event also signaled the unifying of HNP with Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod, which Duterte crafted when he was still Mayor.

“The good practice maybe sa ninja cops, I will now raise the amount to P5 million per ninja cop,” the President said.

“Kung dalhin mo sa akin na patay, P5 million. Pag buhay, bigyan kita P10,000 [If you bring him to me dead, I’ll give you P5 million. If alive, I’ll give you P10,000],” he implied.

The President stressed that the reward would be given to informants, no questions asked, insisting that he was not bluffing and intends to increase the bounty by P1 Million each month if the ‘Ninja’ cop does not cooperate.

“Hindi ako nagbobola. Hindi ako kagaya ng iba man. ‘Pag sinabi ko publiko, totoo ‘yan. Five million sa ninja cops. Surrender within 48 hours [I am not joking. I am not like others. If I say it in public, that’s the truth. P5 million for ninja cops. Surrender within 48 hours],” Duterte said.

“Kasi ‘pag hindi kayo nag-surrender, dadagdagan ko ‘yan one million per month hanggang ang asawa mo maghanap ng boyfriend diyan na papatayin ka. Totoo [Because if you don’t surrender, I will increase it by P1 million per month until your wife will look for a boyfriend who will kill you],” Duterte added.

The bounty was set initially to P3 Million last year for dirty cops involved in the illegal drug trade at a time when illegal drugs seized in legitimate police operations were recycled.

Duterte also warned cops to “better shape up” in his remarks as he would NEVER tolerate corrupt and abusive law enforcers bearing the badge of honor.

“Yung police hanggang karami ang daming kalokohan. You better shape up because I will rise and fall sa issue ng corruption [The police are involved in mischief. You better shape up because I will rise and fall on the issue of corruption],” the Chief Executive said.

“Ang pulis maraming atraso. P*** i*** kayo. Sinabi ko sa inyo, tama na [The police have many offenses. Son of a b*tch, I told you to stop],” he added.

Meanwhile, at an earlier speech of about 110 words during the Armed Forces command conference, Duterte relayed his sentiments about having to QUIT along with his frustration of not being able to fix corruption even after 2 years of persistent effort.


“Guys, I want you to know that I am thinking of stepping down because I’m tired. While I am not against or angry against anybody, my chase against graft and corruption seems to be endless and it has contaminated almost all government departments and offices,” he said.

“If you think there is somebody more competent, then by all means, replace me and put him in power. Or a group of persons who you think could bring prosperity to this nation, then do it because I said I’m tired and I think I cannot fulfill the promise of ending all these problems,” he argued.
