Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa revealed that his son Kerwin, dubbed as Eastern Visayas’ top drug lord, has a boss more powerful and influential than the two “narco general” earlier linked to him.
Mayor Espinosa revealed the information to Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido, the Albuera Police chief, during their five-hour long meeting that started at 10 a.m. and lasted until 3:30 p.m. on Monday, August 22, according to GMA News’ “Unang Balita.”
As per an Inquirer article dated August 22, 2016, the Abuera mayor went to the local police station to tell Espenido what he knew about the illegal drug operation of his son. The five-hour long meeting has even sparked a rumor in Albuera that the mayor has been arrested.
The mayor declined to issue a statement after emerging from Espenido’s office and went directly to the Municipal Hall where he was staying since he returned to work on August 6. He said he felt safer in his office than in his own house.
“Dili ko puwede makasulti ninyo bisan unsa (I cannot tell you anything),” he told members of the media.
Likewise, Espenido declined to give details on the information given to him by the mayor, saying he will first notify his superiors. He lauded Mayor Espinosa for his cooperation.
