‘Drug lords hiding near MILF enclaves’

0

COTABATO CITY: Law enforcers are apparently having a hard time neutralizing two high-profile Muslim drug lords in Maguindanao province because of the proximity of their lairs to a camp of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Sources said the two drug lords, identified only as Taipeh and Wang and described as “big fishes,” have confined themselves in Barangay Kabuling at the border of Pandag and Paglas towns after President Rodrigo Duterte assumed office on June 30, but reportedly continued their drug trafficking activities. Barangay Kabuling is a confirmed enclave of the MILF, covered by the July 9, 1997 Agreement on General Cessation of Hostilities with the government. Barangay officials in nearby Tulunan town in North Cotabato said Taipeh and Wang are the major suppliers of shabu in their municipality. Taipeh and Wang have been bragging of immunity from arrest.
