CORRECTIONS (BuCor) Chief Nicanor Faeldon was woken up on Friday morning by the news that his estranged son was arrested in a drug raid in Naga City, alongside his partner’s father and associates.
Faeldon said he was “totally” clueless of the incident as Nicanor Faeldon Jr. had not contacted him, noting that the boy lived with him when he was young but that he had had since been staying with the mother.
“I am totally clueless on that incident as neither my son nor the police authorities have contacted me,” he said in a statement.
The former military official commended local authorities in Naga and vowed “not to lift a finger” to sway the investigation in his son’s favor.
In fact, Faeldon assured police and prosecutors that he would personally castigate Nicanor Jr. if he was ever found involved in the drug trade or if he was tested positive for drug use.
“In any event, if the police investigation will show that my son, Nicanor Jr. is indeed, a drug pusher and therefore a menace to society, then there will be no need to prosecute or to jail him,” Faeldon said.
“I will personally obliterate him from the face of the earth,” he added.
Faeldon, keen on distancing himself from the incident, urged police to immediately report to their superiors and to the media should they hear of any attempt from him to influence the investigation.
His son, 31, had been on his own as an adult for years, Faeldon said. NEIL JAYSON N. SERVALLOS
