On Monday, September 5, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte announced the relief of City Police Office director Sr. Supt. Michael John Dubria and Task Force Davao commander Col. Henry Robinson, Jr.

Both Dubria and Robinson were installed in their respective posts just this year. Robinson only assumed the post in May, while Dubria began his stint in June.

The sacking of the two police officials comes in the wake of the blast at the Roxas Avenue night market in Davao City over the weekend, which left 15 dead and more than 60 wounded.

Sara explained her decision to sack the Dubria and Robinson in a Philippine Daily Inquirer report. "It's not about their qualifications, it’s about me. I took what happened personally, there will be strained relationship between us if they continue to stay in their posts," she said.

Sara has not yet announced the two police officials' replacements. Meanwhile, as CNN Philippines reported, she has offered a P2-million reward for the arrest of the perpetrators. The report noted that "P1 million will be given to anyone who can provide information on the identity and whereabouts of the perpetrators, while another P1 million will be given to anyone who can turn over the perpetrators to concerned authorities."
