Sophia Parojinog, the daughter of Vice Mayor Nova Parojinog of Ozamiz City said that the pieces of evidence against their family were planted by the police.
In addition, she claims that there are no drug paraphernalia inside their house. She said:
“Paano magkakaron ng baril sa likod niyan? Like, mga bata po ‘yung nandito. Saka walang lalaki, puro babae lang.” (How can the guns be at the back? There were kids here. There were no guys, only women).
Meanwhile, in a screenshot of her Facebook post, Sophia reportedly hinted that a congressman was behind the pre-dawn raid of the family which led to the killing of Parojinog.
She said the congressman has a personal interest in the incident. She also claims that someone destroyed the CCTV camera and took away the hard drive.< This is her said post on her Facebook account: "Pilanter at it’s finest. What a disgrace. Shame on you people behind all this (sic.). God will take care of everything.”
“Walang modo, mga hayop kayo! Sobra nyong pinahirapan ang Mama ko. Yan congressman, yan ang gusto mo. Dahil personal mong interest! Kinuha ang hard drive ng among CCTV at sinira ang CCTV sa kwarto ng Mama ko. Mga hayop kayo! Di na kayo naawa sa mga kapatid ko, halos inatake sa puso. Diyos na bahala sa inyo.”
