President Rodrigo Duterte recently ordered a town mayor to surrender within 24 hours, or else shall face being shot on sight, this was what his spokesman said.
The Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that Duterte is now demanding Albuera, the Leyte Mayor Ronaldo Espinosa Sr. and his son Kerwin Espinosa to immediately surrender now, “on the grounds of drug trafficking and coddling.”
If they both fail to surrender within 24 hours starting now, an “order of ‘shoot on sight’ will be given to them if they resist and endanger the lives of arresting police officers,” Abella said.
This comes days after Espinosa’s bodyguards were arrested in a buy-bust operation in Barangay Benolho. Seized from the suspects were around 237 grams of suspected shabu that has a market worth of about 1.9 million pesos.
