The woman accused by Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno as being the voice in the viral 888 call has denied the accusation saying her voice is different from the recording. She also added she is not a staff of Provincial Tourism Officer Atty. Jeffrey Saclot.
In her Facebook post, Leona Cabagnot said she is a consultant at the Capitol and not a staff of Atty. Saclot. She is also willing to be interviewed anytime and compare her voice.
“Nakurat ko kay ako man gyud iyang gpasanginlan. Let me correct dli ko staff ni Atty Saclot. Prov. Consultant ko sa Capitol. Pwd ko ma nterview anytime and try to compare my voice kng ako ba! DILI GYUD NA AKO UG KLARU KAU NGA DILI AKNG TINGOG NG NANAWAG! NGANO AKO GIPASANGINLAN? UNSAY PROF NIMO?“
