A day before Rodrigo Duterte officially assumes his post as the 16th President of the Philippines, 3 more drug pushers surrenders for fear of their lives.
In a report filed by Jiggy Manicad of GMA News, 3 drug pushers allegedly approached the GMA 7 reporter for help before their police handler make good of his threat to kill them.
According to the three drug pushers aka Ding, Allan and Winston, they have been selling illegal drugs for a year under the protection of a policeman for 30,000 pesos a month.
When asked by GMA 7 reporter Jiggy Manicad for more details, the most outspoken among them told Mr. Manicad that their police protector provided them with recycled drugs confiscated from the police raid.
Bali po yun ay nakukuha lang rin nya sa mga kanyang nahuhuli.
Because of their desire to leave the drug syndicate, they decided to stop selling illegal drugs.
This is when the death threats from the police started rolling in, forcing them to flee and seek out the media to help them surrender in one piece.
Pinagbantaan nga ‘ko na pagbalik niya, akoý didikdikin at shoot to kill ang order sa akin. Kamiý natatakot nga sa banta niyang ýun at gawa nga nung isa naming ay pinagbabaril na. Kamiý natatakot nga sa banta nyang yun.
And the last straw that broke the proverbial back of the camel? A colleague was killed recently!
Gawa nga yung isang kasama namin pinagbabaril na.
With the help of a concerned citizen in Rizal, the 3 surrender feelers are hiding in a safehouse somewhere in Rizal.
One of the suspects revealed that 3 policemen run the drug syndicate.
Minsan poý solo, minsan po ay tatlo sila. Tumatawag…Kapag nagreraid na, lagi po syang una. Siya po ang unang pumapasok sa mga re-raidin.
It can be recalled that President Duterte expressed his displeasure to the media with the recent spike deaths of drug pushers during police operation because he said, many of them were simply out to silence the drug pushers before they rat out their police protectors.
In the news report, Mr. Manicad revealed that he contacted incoming PNP Chief dela Rosa regarding the matter who promised to get in touch with the three drug suspects when he assumes his post as PNP Chief.
Meanwhile, Rigoberto Tiglao, a Pnoy critic lambasted the outgoing President of being lukewarm to the illegal drug trade.
I’ve reviewed all of Aquino’s six State of the Nation Addresses (SONAs), and it is shocking that in all of these, he had not even mentioned that we have a serious illegal drug problem as if he were deliberately concealing its existence.
