Remember Brian Edrote? He was the Cagayan de Oro native shown in the video which went viral in social media that we posted last May 31, 2017. He is now safe after escaping from his captors.
In the video (link below), he was shown to be calling President Duterte to stop the military actions and asking help from authorities in Cagayan de Oro.
Accordingly, the military offensive aided in his and others’ escape. Read in full his ordeal and how he managed to escape in Bencyrus Ellorin’s article at Mindanao Gold Star Daily HERE.
