Vhong Navarro attacked inside a condo unit in The Fort

Comedian and television host Vhong Navarro is currently in critical condition after being “tied up and attacked by a group of men” inside a condominium unit in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig on Wednesday night, ABS-CBN News reported, quoting director Chito Rono, his manager.

Rono claims that Navarro is still not able to fully recount what really transpired during that fateful night since he cannot speak properly yet. Because of the incident, Navarro might have to undergo an operation. The comedian will not be seen in “Showtime” and his other television projects as he moves toward full recovery.

Pinoy netizens have expressed their support for Navarro by making the hashtag #PrayForVhongNavarro the top trending topic in the Philippines as of Saturday midnight. Meanwhile, here’s the full text of Rono’s statement:

Si Vhong Navarro ay naimbitihan sa isang condominium unit sa Fort ng isang kaibigang babae. At sa di pa malamang kadahilanan, siya ay piniringan, pinagtulungang bugbugin, ginapos, tinakot, at hinihingan ng pera ng isang grupo ng kalalakihan noong January 22, Miyerkules.

“Si Vhong ay kasalukuyang nagpapagaling at mawawala ng pansamantala sa ‘It’s Showtime’ at iba pa niyang proyekto.”
