MANILA, Philippines — At least two suspected pushers were killed and 10 persons were arrested since the weekend as the government continues its war against illegal drugs.
Alleged pusher Eduardo Espino was slain in alleged shootout during a sting along J. Santiago street in Malanday, Valenzuela on Saturday afternoon, said city police drug enforcement head Chief Inspector Jowilouie Bilaro.
The suspect was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
Police recovered a loaded .38 caliber revolver and three sachets of suspected shabu at the crime scene.
Police later recovered 15 more sachets of shabu from Espino’s cadaver at the morgue.
Police also arrested at the crime scene Jojit Lazaro for alleged possession of two sachets of suspected shabu.
In Caloocan, a reported pusher identified only as Makmak was killed in an alleged shootout during a sting along Centros street in Barangay 63 Sunday night.
Makmak allegedly drew his firearm and shot at Police Officer 1 Raymond Dio, who was unharmed, according to city police chief Senior Superintendent Restituto Arcangel.
This prompted PO1 Domeciano Merin to retaliate, hitting Makmak in the body.
Police recovered a .45 caliber pistol, a loaded magazine and 10 sachets of suspected shabu.
