Two gunmen on motorcycles reportedly opened fire on Rapid’s vehicle.
Rapid, a well-known critic of former President Rodrigo Duterte and President Ferdinand “Bomb” Marcos Jr., has a radio show called “Rapid Fire” on DWBL 1242.

The security sector consists of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), the Philippine Army, the Philippine Air Force, the Philippine Navy, the Philippine National Police (PNP), and the Bureau of Prisons Enforcement Fire Department.
During the aforementioned meeting, they discussed the current “state of peace and order” in the country and how to keep the Filipino people safe during the president’s absence.
The vice president also ordered the security services to show no mercy to terrorists and criminals.
Meanwhile, a broadcaster claiming to be a relative of Senator Lito Rapide criticized the vice president, calling her “epal.”
“Habang wala ‘yung pusa eh umeepal ang daga,” he said.
“Ano ba eto, kala ko Department of ID*** este, Education si Sikwatary ito, eh bakit siya nakikipagpulong sa National Defense at AFP? Architectural Supervisor? Bakit can banta ba, wala naman ah!” he added.
