Ferrer to cops: Find ultimate solution to drug problem


Negros Occidental Vice Governor Jeffrey Ferrer has urged the police to “find the ultimate solution” to stop the illegal drug problem.

“No more words are needed,” said Ferrer.

The vice governor was reacting to the statement of Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido, head of the Bacolod City Police Drug Enforcement Unit, that Bacolod City is “shabulized.”

On Wednesday, Espenido urged members of organized crime groups in Negros Island to go to his office, cooperate and help the government go after those really behind the illegal drug trade. (

Meanwhile, Ferrer said no drug lord will surface and admit that he or she is involved in the drug trade.

After thorough verification, the police should catch those engaged in the drug trade, he added.
