Alleged bagman Ronnie Dayan is requesting that he and Senator Leila de Lima be jailed together inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP), because he feels that they will be safe there. This is according to a netizen, who claims she heard him begging to the police officers who arrested him in his house in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan Thursday night, February 23.
“Wag daw pong pabayaan si de lima, at siguruduhin daw sana na ligtas ito lagi kung san man siya ikukulong. Sabi nya din kung pwede, pareho na lang sila makulong sa Bilibid para mas masiguro nya na ligtas sya dun, kasi marami daw sila kaibigan dun.” A female netizen, who requested anonymity tells Taho News via a Facebook Private Message.
(Please take care of De Lima, and make sure that she is safe wherever she will be imprisoned. If possible, both of us be jailed at NBP. It is a sure place for her because we have a lot of friends there.)

Dayan, who was Sen. De Lima’s former driver-bodyguard and lover, is among the three personalities included in the arrest warrant issued by Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court Branch 204 Judge Juanita Guerrero this Thursday. Also included are former National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) deputy director Rafael Ragos and the lady senator.
Apparently, we cannot confirm the authenticity of the netizen’s claim, and she did reply to our questions. Nevertheless, police say that he did not resist arrest. Reports say that he was in tears when his convoy was on its way to Urbiztondo police station. He was later brought to Muntinlupa RTC, and is now temporarily detained at Muntinlupa Police Station.
