0 406

Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III on June 25 once again urged Ilonggos to stay away from the influence of illegal drugs.

The Iloilo politiko made the statement following the killing of Barangay Bakhaw Captain Remia Gregori by unidentified gunmen,

Gregori was under investigation by the city council for her alleged link to the illegal drug trade.

Her brother, Richard Prevendido, was a suspected drug lord in Western Visayas.

Prevendido was killed last year in a police operation.

“That will serve as a warning. Although you are presumed innocent until proven otherwise by a competent court and by evidence but if there are reports or you are affiliated with such then it brings you no good,” Espinosa said.
