9,209 drug users, pushers in Davao surrender

THE Davao City Police Office (DCPO) reported a total of 9,209 self-confessed illegal drug users and pushers who surrendered to police stations this month.

DCPO spokesperson Senior Inspector Catherine dela Rey also reported there were 253 pushers arrested and 34 killed in 183 drug bust operations as of September 19.

Davao City police director Senior Superintendent Michael John Dubria said despite the issues and concerns that the city is facing the past weeks, the campaign against drugs continues.

"We admit that our focus on war against drugs has been diverted to other concerns but it does not mean the project double barrel or the campaign has ended, patuloy pa rin po," Dubria said.

Dubria urged other individuals involved in illegal drugs to submit themselves to authorities.

Dubria said they have nothing to be anxious about as they will only go through documentation and rehabilitation.
