0 35

Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña admitted that the region is indeed a drug hotspot, subscribing to the pronouncements made by President Rodrigo Duterte.

Osmeña said that police operations would show that the province is a hotspot as it yielded multimillion worth of illegal drugs across Cebu province starting July 2016. He added that he doesn’t know where the drugs are coming from.

Mr. Duterte earlier said that he sees Cebu as drug hotspot, while the Iloilo was the bedrock.

For his part, Police Regional Office-7 Director Chief Superintendent Noli Taliño said that what the President said was true, noting that they have apprehended even elected officials in their previous operations.

Taliño, however, said that they are slowly winning their war against illegal drugs, saying they are hopeful that the illegal narcotics problem would soon be eradicated

Osmeña said there is no political agenda behind Duterte’s pronouncements on the issue.
