“Sa sunod sunod na tagumpay ng ating mga yunit sa paghuli sa mga wanted ng kamaynilaan at karatig na probinsya, nais kong siguruhin na makakaasa ang ating mga kababayan na magpapatuloy ito. Hindi namin hahayaan na magtago sila sa batas kaya naman bente kwatro oras kaming magmamasid, maghahanap at mag iimbestiga,” said PMGEN DANAO.###
