“I will double the P50 million, I’ll make it P100 million to anyone who can kill Duterte. I’m here in Boracay now,” Quiboyen said in his post.
Joint operations were conducted by the Regional Anti-Cybercrime Unit 6, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group Regional Field Unit 6, and Malay police around 3:30 pm at Sitio Hagdan in Barangay Yapak which resulted to his arrest.
Quiboyen was easily arrested as he has a police record for traffic violation earlier this year.

According to reports, the teacher who was arrested by the NBI in Zambales said he is just bored and frustrated on the current situation of the country that’s why he posted the threat on his social media account. Ella Dionisio/DMS
