In front of thousands of supporters in Iloilo City on Tuesday, April 19, presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte revealed that he shot a fellow law student who was bullying him at San Beda College.

According to Duterte, the law student picked on him because he was Bisaya. Because of the shooting incident which took place in the school corridor, Duterte was almost expelled from school but was able to graduate eventually.

“Pero sa totoo lang, sanay ako magbaril ng tao. Mag-graduate na lang kami sa San Beda, may binaril akong tao,” Duterte disclosed.

(The truth is, I’m used to shooting people. I was about to graduate from San Beda when I shot someone.)

Duterte disclosed that his verbally abusive classmate was pushing people in the corridor when he decided to fight back.

He said: “Mag-gagraduate na kami, binantayan ko siya, sabi ko, ‘Ito, may tama ito sa akin. Bago kami maghiwa-hiwalay sa San Beda, ginaganoon niya, bully, ‘Hoy, hoy, hoy,’ kasi nasa corridor kami, papasok. Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Putang-ina mo kung tinamaan ako niyan, babarilin kita. Putang-ina, tinamaan nga ako sa ilong. Ahhh, bang! Expelled.”

(We were about to graduate, I watched him and I said ‘I’ll teach this guy a lesson.’ Before we parted ways in San Beda he would say “Hoy, hoy, hoy” in the corridor before we enter. I told him “ *** if that hits me, I will shoot you. *** it hit me on the nose. Ahh, bang! Expelled.)

Although he refused to give more details about the incident, Duterte said his victim survived.

His shocking revelation during the campaign rally drew applause from the crowd.

A report by Inquirer revealed that the law student Duterte was referring to was his Lex Talionis fraternity brod Octavio Goco.

A fraternity member who refused to be identified said that San Beda College did not want to expel him yet did not allow him to join the graduation rites.

However, another source from the fraternity told Inquirer said that the shooting incident was “hushed up” by the fraternity with the help of school authorities.

Goco was admitted to the bar in 1975 and later migrated to the United Sates. He died in 2004.

Duterte would later establish Lex Talionis chapter at Ateneo de Davao with fellow San Beda graduate Atty. Alberto Sipaco Jr.
