0 289

Police in Western Visayas are washing their hands off recent killings involving motorcycle-riding assailants in the region, insisting they are not police-sanctioned.

Western Visayas police chief P/Brig. Gen. Rene Pamuspusan said this amid recent killings of personalities linked to illegal drugs.

“I can’t speculate on that. There could be a number of reasons why these victims are killed,” Pamuspusan said (

He said it is possible the killings stemmed from a “turf war between the people involved in the (drug) trade.”

Pamuspusan also assured that all killings involving motorcycle-riding assailants are being investigated.

In Iloilo City, two drug personalities were killed in less than 24 hours last Aug. 16 and 17.

Meanwhile, Pamuspusan instructed field commanders to strengthen the police beat patrol system.
