AT least four skeletal remains of suspected drug personalities were found at the back of Muslim Mosque which was allegedly the burial grounds for drug-related killings Tuesday afternoon in Caloocan City.

Northern Police District (NPD) director Senior Supt. Roberto Fajardo, who personally witnessed the exhumation of four human skulls and bones, said the discovery of the graveyard at Phase 12, Bgy. 188, Tala, was based on information given by a resident in the area.
 
Fajardo said the informant told them about the graveyard alleged to be the burial place of drug pushers and users allegedly killed by the group of former Barangay Chairman Edris Domato, who was tagged as number one drug lord in the city.
   
Domato was ambushed in Quezon City on June 25, 2016.
    
Joint operatives of the Caloocan police, led by Senior Supt. Johnson Almazan, District Special Operation Unit (DSOU), Intelligence Unit, and in coordination with the San Jose del Monte Police Station, conducted manual diggings until past 4 p.m.
 
Fajardo believed that drug lords in the area were already cleansing their ranks even before President Rodrigo Duterte assumed office last July.
    
The district director said the team of Supt. Ali Duterte, chief of DSOU, and the NPD Scene of the Crime Operatives will continue the diggings with the use of a backhoe.
