Ronnie Dayan, former driver and lover of Sen. Leila De Lima, is now under the custody of the Pangasinan Provincial Police Office (PPPO) Thursday, November 24.
The former arrived at PPPO headquarters in Lingayen amid tight security around 10: 30 p.m.
Earlier, Dayan gave his testimony before the House of Representatives’ Committee on Justice which is looking into the alleged proliferation of illegal drugs inside the New Bilibid Prison.
During the hearing, Dayan claimed De Lima received P8 million from Eastern Visayas drug lord Kerwin Espinosa.
The former also requested to visit his family in Barangay Dalangiring, Urbiztondo, a request which is yet being evaluated by the PPPO
The PPPO arrested Dayan last November 21 in San Juan, La Union after two months of hiding in a mountainous barangay in the town of San Gabriel.
He declined the offer of some congressmen for him to remain under their protective custody and instead opted to go home to his family in Urbiztondo.
