City Police Office OIC Supt. Luisito Magnaye said almost all of the city’s 98 barangays are suffering from the pernicious drug problem.

After declaring recently that Zamboanga City’s drug problem is alarming, Magnaye said he and his men are focusing the anti-drug operations in the different coastal barangays and those within the seven kilometer radius.

Magnaye  has directed all chiefs of police stations and police troopers to intensify the campaign against illegal drugs in their respective area of jurisdiction  stressing that drugs destroy the youth and several forms of criminality are derived from the menace.

Magnaye made the declaration during  the command conference at the Zamboanga City Police Office and  the visit of Philippine National Police Chief Dir. Gen. Ricardo Marquez here in Zamboanga City last week.

Marquez conducted a command visit in Bongao Tawi-Tawi and  sailed around Basilan island with the speedboat of the Special Action Force led by Sr. Insp. Espe.

Marquez also directed all police troopers to perform their job and mission with the aim of safeguardingcommunities in Zamboanga Peninsula, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi –Tawi. — Allen Abastillas
