Based on the intelligence report, the two African Drug Syndicate (ADS) members are allegedly involved in the wide distribution of shabu in Bicol Region and Calabarzon.

 

MANILA, Philippines — Eleven sachets of suspected shabu were confiscated by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in two Nigerians who are alleged members of African Drug Syndicate (ADS) in an entrapment operation in Bacoor, Cavite last Friday afternoon.

The sachets were hidden inside cellphone charger adapter.

However, only two of the 11 sachets contained shabu while others contained a chemical compound that was not classified as a dangerous drug based on the screening and confirmatory test made by PDEA.

“Ang assessment ng PDEA, indeed nagkakahirapan ng suplay ng shabu kaya nandadaya na ang mga tao, itong mga pusher,” said PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino.

(PDEA’s assessment reveals that supply of shabu is indeed getting harder to find that’s why pushers are forced to fake it.)

The suspects were identified as Agu Austin Chukwuebuka and Nkwocha Chimaobi.

They fully denied the allegations against them.

“I’m just a student. I don’t know anything about this,” said Chukwuebuka.

“I don’t know anything about the drug. This is my first time to see drugs. I don’t do any illegal business, I’m a student of course and I’m sponsored by my family,” said Chimaobi.

Based on the intelligence report, the two ADS members are allegedly involved in the wide distribution of shabu in Bicol Region and Calabarzon.

They are facing charges for violating Section 5 of Article 2 of Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

The operatives found the two after apprehending suspected big-time drug lord, Olivia Encinas, as well as two other ADS members during the previous year. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
