Digos City - Mayor Joseph Peñas strongly supports the national drive of President-elect Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to rid the country of illegal drugs, illegal gambling and corruption.

During the meeting of the City Peace and Order Council, he asked the members to “unite, be one in saying yes to this program of the president (President-elect Rodrigo Duterte) by doing our part.”

Meanwhile, suspected drug pushers were arrested over the weekend as Digos City police operatives intensified their anti-illegal drug operations. Police Superintendent April Mark Young warned drug traffickers to get out of Digos City. “Stop or get out of Digos. You will suffer the full consequences of the law!” Police Superintendent April Mark Young issued this stern warning. “We know who you are and where you get your supplies.

“I appeal to the people, especially parents, we should not wait for the police, we should not wait for agencies of the government tasked to apprehend, we should rise as one against illegal activities, against illegal drugs,” Mayor Peñas said.
