(UPDATED) Senator Leila de Lima's driver and alleged bagman Ronnie Dayan arrived in Muntinlupa Friday, and was placed in the custody of the Muntinlupa City Jail.

He was brought to Muntinlupa in connection with a case alleging his and De Lima's involvement in the illegal drug trade at the New Bilibid Prison.

“Hindi ko alam ang nararamdaman ko sa ngayon,” Dayan said in an interview with reporters.

Dayan will be alone in his detention cell, as he is a high profile detainee. He will also have to provide his own bed, police said.

Muntinlupa Chief of Police, Senior Superintendent Nicolas Salvador reassured the public that there will be no special treatment for Dayan.

According to his legal counsel, they do not know how long Dayan will stay at the Muntinlupa City Jail. However, they expect he will be detained there while the case is ongoing.

Dayan earlier stayed in a vehicle which brought him to Metro Manila from Pangasinan, where he was arrested Thursday at his home in Barangay Galarin, Urbiztondo.

Friday morning, it was reported that he was in tears as police took him to face the court. --with reports from Elaine Fulgencio, ABS-CBN News
