BODIES of suspected drug personalities practically litter the cities of Pasay, Taguig, Parañaque and Makati as extra-judicial killings continue while the perpetrators, allegedly members of the so-called “Deadly Death Squad,” were apparently operating with impunity.
At the strike of 1 a.m. yesterday, a man’s body was found dead on Macapagal Blvd., Bgy. Tambo, Parañaque City.
Senior Supt. Jose Carumba, chief of the Parañaque police, said the victim bore a gunshot wound in the head while his hands were tied with an electric cord. He, however, could not say whether the victim was killed due to illegal drugs.
Some 45 minutes after, riding-in-tandem DDS gunmen shot dead Joshua Montes Tan, 22, and Cordova Gelizon, 31, both of Sitio Sto. Niño, Bgy. San Martin de Porres while playing billiards.
Carumba said both victims died on the spot due to multiple gunshot wounds in the head and body. One plastic sachet of shabu each were recovered from the victims.
He said the suspects, wearing helmet, masks and jacket, escaped after the incident that took place in a billiard shop.
In Taguig City, the bodies of two suspected drug pushers, identified as Modriae Kamid and Dipatuan Sayutin, both residents of Tanyag St., Bgy. South Signal, were found at 2:45 a.m. on a street in Bgy. South Signal. Both victims bore bullet wounds in the head.
Elements of Taguig PCP 4 said that the two victims, who were on their drug watchlist and object of their surveillance the past few weeks, were known drug users and pushers in their neighborhood.
In Pasay, police report showed that an unidentified man, described as about 30 to 35 years old, 5’3” in height, and wearing a black T-shirt, jogging pants and slippers was found dead in a vacant lot at 1780 Interior, Taft Avenue, at 3:45 a.m.
The victim bore three gunshot wounds in the head and body while three plastic sachets of shabu and spent shell for a gun were recovered at the crime scene.
Salvador Salazar, barangay chairman, said that prior to the discovery of the victim’s body, gunshots were heard coming from the area.
In Makati, at 9 p.m. Sunday, Senior Supt. Rommil Mitra, city chief of police, said Efren Neri, of 27-H, Lapu-Lapu St., Bgy. West Rembo, was shot dead apparently by RIT-DDS.
Neri was seated in front of a bakery near his house when the suspects struck.
Police said a plastic sachet of suspected shabu was found in his possession while a cardboard was left beside his body that read “Drug pusher ako, ’wag tularan”.
