Despite government forces fighting and dying to save the country, there remains dissenters who pick out issues to throw at collective efforts to fight terrorism.
Maranao lawyers of the Intergrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) issued a statement that informed President Rodrigo Duterte of “unauthorized intrusions” and “rampant loss of valuable personal belongings”.
Contrary to the reports of the IBP, government troops were able to recover Php 79 million during a Maute raid in exchange for their lives including 1st Lt. Frederick Savellano.

“From a soldier responding to accusations of stealing
“Kasuhan nyo ang mga kasama naming namatay para sa Marawi. Isama nyo na kami lahat kasama ang mga kabaro namin na taga Marawi rin. At pag nakulong kami, kayo ng bahala sa Bayan natin. Kasi po saan ilalagay ng tropa ang pera at alahas? Sa bulsa at combat pack? Paano kapag na-snipe or ma Killed-In-Action ang tropa tapos may ganun sa bulsa at pack? Nakakahiya yun! Meron naba sa mga namatay naming kasama ang may pera at alahas sa bulsa ng marecover ang katawan nila? Kaharap mo na nga si kamatayan, magnanakaw ka pa ba? Edi magcheckpoint din kayo at icheck nyo mga gamit ng tropa namin. Bat di nyo sabihin yan sa mga Maute Friends (nyo) Yan ba ang gusto nyo?“
