CEBU CITY—Two suspected drug users were shot dead by unknown assailants early Wednesday in two villages in Cebu City that were plagued with problems on illegal drugs.

Chrisar Babatid had a drinking session with friends around 12:10 a.m. in when a man on board a motorcycle shot him several times.

Babatid died of multiple gunshot wounds in his body and head.

Relatives of the victim said Babatid surrendered during the implementation of the Oplan Tokhang last month.

Two hours after, Matt Rizon was shot dead by an unidentified assassin in Barangay Duljo-Fatima. Rizon sustained gunshot wounds on the body.

PO3 Nicolo Gonzales of the Cebu City Police Office’s Homicide Division said Rizon was also a self-confessed drug user who earlier surrendered to the police.

Since July 1, at least 18 suspected drug pushers and users were shot dead by unknown assailants.
