The viral post of a former Cebu Governor might tell us something about a PNP General tagged by Pres. Duterte as drug protector has been doing the rounds online.
Representative Gwendolyn Garcia and former Cebu Governor shared an insightful but yet unflattering narrative about General Garbo.
In the post, Representative Garcia of Cebu recalled her “spirited exchange of words” with then Assistant Regional Director Garbo after the latter turned down her request that the PDEA, the AFP and the PNP to join hands in the province total all-out war against illegal drugs.

As former RPOC Chair of Region 7 then, I remember having a spirited exchange of words with then Assistant Regional Director Garbo. I had asked that the PDEA, the AFP and the PNP to join hands in our total all-out war against illegal drugs. Garbo refused. He said it was the PDEA’s mandate, not the PNP’s.
He reminded me of this exchange, that early morning right after the suspension order was served against me. He said then that he was ready to join Magpale (Pnoy’s and the LP’s chosen OIC Governor) and turn the Capitol into a garrison state.
“You’ll have to understand, Ma’am. I’m working for my second star.” He was a one-star general then.
After that, Garbo proceeded on his meteoric rise in the PNP ranks. He almost became PNP Chief of Staff. But a dossier on his drug links thwarted his ambitions.
Rep. Garcia’s post has generated more than 250 shares since it was posted 23 hours ago.
Ramon R.Durano IV attested that the said heated exchange between the former Governor of Cebu and Gen. Garbo did really happen.
I was a witness to this, they showed no respect at all and acted like the Gestapo. Now it’s their turn to be humiliated!
