Duterte’s made a promise to make his anti-drug war campaign bloody and nasty but before it even started, one by one they are raising the white flags.
But to see the drug pushers, users, and couriers trooping to the local police stations, signifying their intention to turn a new page in their lives is just surreal!
In Quezon City, more than 700 individuals surrendered to the local police and accepted the offer of the local government for amnesty, drug rehabilitation, and livelihood assistance.
According to the CNN article, “the program is part of QC Police Department’s (QCPD) “Oplan Katok at Pakiusap” or “Oplan KAPAK,” which calls on drug users and pushers to stop their trade or face arrest the next time around.”
In Mindanao, in the provinces of South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat, 3000 drug users and pushers surrendered to the police, ahead of the June 30 Presidential inauguration of Duterte.
According to 95.7 Brigada News FM Koronadal, 1990 individuals connected to the illegal drug trade in one way or the other gave themselves up to their local police in South Cotabato while 700 individuals surrendered in Sultan Kudarat.
As of this writing, the local police are expecting more people to surrender before June 30 as the inauguration of President-elect Duterte is fast approaching.
The news of drug suspects surrendering to the local police voluntarily has buoyed the optimism of the netizens that President Duterte will make good of his promise of stamping out the illegal drug trade in the country in 3-6 months.
SHARE if you believe President Duterte can stop the illegal drug trade or even neutralize them in 6 months.
