Duterte to Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr, Son: Surrender or ‘die

“President Rodrigo R. Duterte demanded the surrender of Mayor Ronaldo Espinosa Sr., of Albuera, Leyte and his son, Kerwin Espinosa, on the grounds of drug-trafficking and coddling, within 24 hours, otherwise an order of “shoot on sight” will be given if they resist and endanger the lives of arresting police officers,” Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said in a statement. Espinosa’s staff were earlier arrested during a buy-bust operation where officers seized P1.9 million worth of shabu.



While two of the mayor’s bodyguards and three employees were arrested, four managed to escape by sprinting into the house of Kerwin Espinosa and locking the gate. The mayor was said to have gone on leave. “Otherwise, an order of ‘shoot on sight’ will be given if they resist and endanger the lives of arresting police officers,” he added in a statement. Reports say about P1.9 million worth of 237 grams of suspected shabu were recovered by authorities in a buy-bust operation last Thursday near the houses of the Espinosas. Arrested during the operation were Mayor Espinosa’s two bodyguards and three employees.
