The Armed Forces of the Philippines said it is seriously looking into alleged coup attempts against the Duterte administration.
“(While news of possible coup attempts are unknown) to us, we are seriously looking into it,” AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla said in a press briefing yesterday.
Earlier reports claimed that some groups affected by Duterte’s reforms will stage a coup.
Padilla declined to give other details as it would telegraph their moves.
He also dismissed reports that some ranks in the AFP are part of the ouster moves as military personnel nationwide are very happy with the attention being given them by the President.
Very early in his term, the Chief Executive took time in his busy schedule to visit various camps nationwide and interact with enlisted personnel and officials.
This interaction and communication with troops have contributed vastly to the high morale being experienced by all AFP personnel, Padilla added. (PNA)
