Ronnie Dayan, the former bodyguard and security aide of Senator Leila De Lima, has been arrested in La Union.
Operatives from the local police and agents from the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) nabbed Dayan at about 11:30 am on Tuesday in Sitio Turod, Barangay San Felipe in San Juan town.
A warrant of arrest was issued against him when he failed to appear in the House inquiry on the proliferation of illegal drug trade in New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
Dayan was previously tagged by President Rodrigo Duterte as the alleged link between De Lima and the high-profile inmates of NBP.
The inmates had supposedly provided then Justice Secretary De Lima drug money to fund her senatorial bid in the 2016 elections.
De Lima denied all these accusations.
