Rodolfo “Jun” Lozada, Jr., in his provincial tour revealed that there are plans to assassinate him. In GMA TV-7 report, Lozada was quoted saying that that some prisoners had been tapped to kill him.
PNP chief Dir. Gen. Avelino Razon, Jr. immediately directed the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) to handle the investigation on Lozada’s alleged death threats, GMA News reported.
In a text message of Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Lorelei Fajardo to GMA News, she reportedly called Lozada to name names and should stop coming up with stories.
In the last few days, Lozada has become heady with his newfound popularity, the Manila Standard Today editorial observes. It adds, [Lozada] tells his stories piecemeal, as if to make sure he won’t lose momentum and his listeners’ interest.
Is his revelation of new “death threat” part of “piecemeal” like stories to sustain his popularity?
With Lozada’s popularity, it is always possible that there are groups that may interest him. It could be an administration-leaning group, an opposition-leaning group, leftist, and ordinary attention-seekers.
The motives may vary. It may not only to silence Lozada but it may also possible to ruin our democracy.
I challenge Lozada to say the “truth”. If it is truth that there is a threat against him, he must seek police assistance, tell who are those persons who plan to kill him. He must substantiate his claim that “some prisoners had been tapped to kill him”.
Otherwise, the suspicion that he is just making stories will escalate.
In Lozadaland, you never run out of outlandish accusations and are never worried about having to back up anything you say with what even remotely resembles proof wrote Jojo Robles in his column Lowdown.
