Cavite marred by drugs, murders

Camp Gen. Vicente Lim, Laguna/Camp Gen. Garcia, Cavite — The image of Cavite has been marred by a series of summary executions and the proliferation of illegal drugs with a suspected member of an African drug syndicate, referred to in the police community as “ADS,” nabbed recently by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) operatives.

PDEA Region 4-A Director III Adzhara Albani said Kingsley Ezeobi, a Nigerian residing at 376 Barangay Sampaloc, Dasamariñas City, was nabbed in a buy-bust operation last Tuesday.

Ezeobi, an alleged member of the ADS operating in the Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon (Calabarzon) region and Metro Manila was arrested near his house after he sold two sachets of suspected “shabu” to a poseur buyer.

Upon his arrest, the marked money used by the PDEA undercover agent was recovered from him.

Charges for violation of Section 5 of Republic Act 9165, the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, has been filed in court before proper authorities.

Meanwhile, two more bodies of “salvage” victims turned up separately in the towns of Noveleta and Amadeo in Cavite, the other day.

The discovery of the two bodies brought to 14 the number of summary execution victims that were found in province after the body of murdered advertising executive Kristelle “Kae” Davantes turned up in a shallow river under the Tibagan Bridge in Barangay Sabutan, Silang, last September 7.

The Provincial Police Office (PPO) and local police officials said they are baffled by the series of so-called extrajudicial killings in the province after the Davantes incident. (Anthony Giron)
