Año vows to destroy terrorists

From the Mindanao Times (May 26): Año vows to destroy terrorists

ARMED Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of staff Gen. Eduardo Año has vowed to destroy the terrorist groups after President Rodrigo R. Duterte extended his tour of duty for six months.

Año, who is supposed to retire next week, said he is humbled by the trust of the President after the latter, upon arrival from Russia, extended his tour of duty and tasked him to lead the fight against terrorists in Mindanao following the declaration of Martial Law.

“I will give my best to restore order in Mindanao and destroy the lawless elements that attacked Marawi city the other day,” Año told TIMES.

Upon his retirement, Año was supposed to assume the post of the Department of Interior Local and Government (DILG) secretary.
