Parojinogs sourced illegal drugs from New Bilibid Prisons
by UNTV News | Posted on Thursday, August 10th, 2017
It was in 2004 when the Parojinogs began their illegal drug trade.
They began with selling small amounts of shabu that they would supply to nearby towns.
But the Parojinogs eventually saw the need for more shabu supply, and they would get them in huge amounts at the New Bilibid Prisons (NBP).
This has been the revelation of Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido.
The chief of Ozamis Police said it was revealed to him by the witnesses and hitman hired by the Parojinogs themselves.
The witnesses and the hitman gathered their courage to tell him all following the death of Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog.
Not only civilians were involved in the illegal drug trade of the Parojinogs, but there were also cops that served as protectors of the illegal activities in the area.
President Rodrigo Duterte announced on Wednesday a P2-million reward for the capture, dead or alive, of the cops involved in the illegal drug trade in Ozamiz.
“Information revealed that there are cops involved in the activities of the Parojinogs. Maybe that information came from the president. But it’s true that there are really cops, I just don’t know how many,” said Espenido.
He added that he had always issued warnings to the Parojonig family from the time he was assigned in the area.
Espenido said they did talk to them but the Parojinogs never admitted their illegal drug operations.
“They never admitted to it, they would always blame politics,” he said. — Mon Jocson | UNTV News & Rescue

MAKATI CITY, Philippines – One hundred individuals, including 10 minors, were arrested by Makati City police on Tuesday for various violations.
The minors were picked up by police for violating the curfew ordinance in the city, while eight others were captured due to illegal drugs.
The operation was prompted by several complaints of pick-pocketing in Burgos Triangle.
