The social media has been going crazy for two days now after a UPLB student Stephen Villena acted rude to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte during the so-called transparency forum inside UP Los Baños campus a couple of days ago.
The criticisms on Villena reach the highest level when a screenshot of Villena’s online payment account was posted online. There seems to be a hidden story behind the bombardment of the said student on presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte.
Villena was allegedly paid by Liberal Party standard bearer and former DILG secretary Mar Roxas.
After a little bit of information digging, it is believed that Stephen Villena is an acquaintance and a friend of Aika Robredo, daughter of congresswoman Leni Robredo who’s quite frankly the running mate of former DILG secretary Mar Roxas.
The viral photos circulating online suggest that Stephen has an account at coin.ph, a website that allows the transfer of money within the Philippines.
As seen from the screenshot, he is from Imus, Cavite and received roughly aboutP50,199.99 in his account paid through M Lhuillier Kwarta Padala.
Though the screenshot cannot be fully confirmed as authentic as Stephen’s social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter were deactivated.
Meanwhile, a UPLB student named Ronald Glenn Celestial took to social media and posted an open letter of apology to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and his supporters, but not without pointing fingers as he slammed local media.
Celestial slammed Rappler.com for posting inaccurate news, which the latter apologized and acknowledged the mistake later.
