Yesterday, there was a buzz on the news streets that “there [was] a possibility” that Ivan “El Chapito” Guzman, son of incarcerated international kingpin of kingpins Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was kidnapped in Puerto Vallarta. However, according to reports, “Lil’ Chapo” is just fine.
According to International Business Times:
…a Twitter account in Guzmán’s name tweeted Tuesday “NO PASA NADA!” This translates to “nothing happens,” or “everything is OK.”
The group of now-kidnapped men were thought to belong to the Sinaloa Cartel, an international drug trafficking gang led by El Chapo, Reuters reported. They were eating at La Leche on Monday when armed attackers — probably from a rival faction — abducted them. Zeta Tijuana reported that nine women who had been with the group of hostages were left behind at the restaurant, as were five of their cars.
Since the kidnapping, authorities have insisted the tourist town of Puerto Vallarta is safe. The governor of the Jalisco state, Aristóteles Sandoval, tweeted that he had upped security and was cooperating with the investigation.
Everyone should be breathing easier. If the son if El Chapo was actually kidnapped, the streets would surely run red. Prayers for those who were taken.
NO PASA NADA!
