LUCENA City -- A self- employed mother, who was seriously hurt in a vehicular accident along with her son and godson, was discovered to have concealed suspected shabu inside her sex organ while undergoing treatment in a hospital, here, on Tuesday.
Quezon police director Senior Supt. Antonio Yarra identified the woman as Imba Masid Domacao, 39, of Purok Sampaguita, Bgy. Sila-ngang Mayao, and member of Muslim community in the city.
Yarra said the woman sustained multiple injuries in the body and head and was under observation in the hospital.
He said Domacao’s jobless son, Khalib Masib Dumacao, 19, suffered severe injuries in the head and died on the spot. Still undergoing treatment for minor injuries was her godson John Paul Francisco, 19, of Bgy. Ibabang Dupay.
City police director Supt. Dennis de Leon said the trio were on a Yamaha MIO 125 motorcycle driven by Khalib and were on their way to Pagbilao town when they figured in an accident.
Traffic officer SPO1 Prime Chryler Velarde said Khalib lost control of the bike as he evaded a stray dog crossing the highway.
Velarde said the bike rammed into the right portion of an approaching Lucena-bound Fuso Canter on the opposite lane.
She said the Canter, driven by Vicente Delgado, 47, a local government employee, is owned by the municipal government of Padre Burgos, Quezon.
On impact, Velarde said the trio were thrown off the pavement several meters away.
At MMG Hospital where the trio were rushed by village folks, De Leon said the attending doctor asked one of the duty nurses to insert a catheter at the woman’s sex organ to prevent her urine from leaking.
He said when the lady nurse was about to insert the catheter, she noticed a cellophane inserted at the woman’s sex organ which she quickly pulled,” said De Leon.
“To her surprise, the cellophane yielded seven medium-size plastic sachets containing 28.6 grams of suspected shabu,” said De Leon.
“Napansin ko po na may nakalitaw na cellophane sa kanyang ari kaya agad ko iyong hinugot at nagulat ako nang nakita ko sa loob noon ang pitong pirasong mas maliliit na plastic sachet na may lamang mga white powder,” De Leon quoted the nurse to have said when interviewed by investigators.
De Leon, however, refused to name the nurse and the attending physician for security reasons.
He said the pieces of evidence were marked by investigators in the presence of Barangay Councilman Nilo Sadia and some hospital personnel before they were brought to Quezon PNP Crime Laboratory Office for examination.
It was learned that before the incident happened, the trio were on their way to BJMP District Jail in Bgy. Talipan, Pagbilao, to visit Imba's husband who has been jailed over drug charges.
In an interview, De Leon told this writer that Imba might have planned to smuggle the illegal drugs inside the jail facility.
He said criminal case for violations of Sec. 11 of RA 9165 is being prepared for filing against Imba.
