President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was in Cagayan de Oro late Friday to visit the wake of two soldiers killed in recent encounters with the New Peoples Army in Misamis Oriental.
The wake was being held at the Loyola Chapel inside Camp Evangelista in Barangay Patag.
Duterte arrived at Camp Evangelista via chopper and was greeted by military officials, City Mayor Oscar Moreno and City Councilor Jay Roa Pascual, a distant relative of the President on his mother side.
The President also visited the wounded soldiers at the army hospital and gave cash assistance.
