TWO suspected drug pushers were killed in separate incidents in Mandaue City.

Past 7 p.m. last Thursday, Dec. 6, Eduardo Baclohan, 32, died in an alleged shootout with anti-narcotics operatives in a drug bust in Sitio Villamanga, Barangay Umapad. He was a former member of the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (Team).

Chief Insp. Mercy Villaro, the Mandaue City Police Office spokesperson, said the Opao Police Station conducted the operation after receiving reports about the suspect’s alleged involvement in selling shabu.

Team dismissed Baclohan early this year after he went absent without official leave. He reportedly stopped working after he refused to undergo a drug test.

During the drug bust, Baclohan ran after realizing he was dealing with the police. He allegedly pulled out a gun and aimed at the poseur buyer.
