STATEMENT BY MAYOR INDAY SARA DUTERTE ON THE ARREST OF CAYAMORA MAUTE

We commend Lt. Col. Nestor Mondia and his team for the apprehension of Mr. Cayamora Maute at the military checkpoint in Toril today.

We commend the entire Task Force Davao team for always being alert, for their hard work, and for their unquestionable dedication to keep Davao City and the Dabawenyos safe from terrorists like the Maute brothers.

The apprehension of the patriarch of the notorious Mautes is crucial in the government's efforts to end the reign of terror experienced in Marawi and the entire Mindanao these days.

This is an important development in our collective fight to reclaim peace and defeat lawlessness and terrorism, and all that threatens our freedom and future.

To the Dabawenyos, let us support our soldiers and our police. Let us always support our government.
