In Caloocan City, a confessed drug user was killed some days after surrendering herself to policemen. The investigators were wondering after discovering that she had not given her real name when she surrendered. 

39-year old Eleanor Ferrer Nacion, a mother of four and a resident of Riverside Libis Baesa in Barangay 160, Caloocan City, was gunned down by three unidentified men with bonnets who forcefully crashed into her house around 1:30 a.m. last Sunday. The three men escaped on a motorcycle after the incident.

Caloocan police chief Senior Supt. Johnson Almazan said that Nacion went to Barangay chairperson Eric Ignacio to surrender under Caloocan City police’s program Oplan Tokhang. The program offers drug users and pushers a second chance to voluntarily surrender.

Police investigators have yet to find out why Nacion gave a different name, Rosalyn Escapon, in her surrender and if her death has something to do with her being a drug user. It was also reported that thirty minutes before Nacion was shot dead, a 19-year-old drug user was shot dead. And along with that, another incident happened at Phase 9, Package 1 in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City. Two other people were injured when two masked men shot them while the victims were in a drug session.

The three victims were rushed to Jose Rodriguez Hospital in Tala, Caloocan City. Bernie Ortega, 20 years old and Edilberto dela Rosa were seriously wounded while Jayar Balentong died in the hospital after the assailants recurrently fired at them and then fled. It was reported that a sachet of suspected shabu and drug paraphernalia were found in Balentong’s possession. Investigators found four 45-cal pistol casings.

On a separate occasion, two drug suspects, Ace John Icban 27, a resident of Barangay 166 and Rodelio Vinluan, 46, a tricycle driver, were arrested by antidrug policemen according to Senior Insp. Bernard Pagaduan, Caloocan City police’s anti-illegal drugs unit chief. Found in their possession were, a gun, a grenade, ammuntion and about 38 grams of drugs.

Meanwhile, in Navotas City, 30 drug suspects were also arrested around 4 a.m. on Sunday at Market 3 in Northbay Boulevard North spearheaded by Navotas City police chief Senior Supt. Dante Novicio. Seven of them were found to have violated the dangerous drugs law, and that is for possessing and selling of illegal drugs.
