HIGH ranking officials from Mindanao were among the names mentioned in the “black book”
owned by suspected car smuggler Allan Bigcas in an inquiry at the House of Representatives
revealed on Monday.
The names of Governor Jalosjos and Sultan Naga Dimaporo Mayor Mutalib Dimaporo (Lanao
del Norte) surfaced as House members opened the “black book” of Bigcas.
Other names mentioned included Mayor Ali, Noah Dimaporo, Edward Emillan, Col. Pimentel,
Boy Plaza, Hannah Toronto, Bullet Jalosjos, among others.
It was not clear what kind of transactions Bigcas entered into with the names mentioned as
he insisted that these individuals were “merely asking him to canvass for the price of several
motorcycle parts” in the U.S. But the “black book” also listed transactions for high-powered
firearms and ammunitions.
He however confirmed ownership of the “black book”, which was recovered by the raiding
NBI teams in his house in Cagayan de Oro.
In joint operations of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI) weeks ago, authorities recovered 25 vehicles from the properties of
Bigcas in Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon. (PIA)
