Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation in Bohol (NBI-Bohol) have arrested at least 100 drug suspects and confiscated about P5 million worth of illegal drugs since January 2016.

Based on its records, the satellite agency arrested drug pushers who came from the provinces of Cebu, Leyte, Davao, Bukidnon, Agusan, and the Misamis provinces.

Lawyer Rennan Augustus Oliva, NBI-Bohol chief, said that although the Philippine National Police has the primary tasks to get rid of illegal drugs, the NBI-Bohol wanted to assist their local counterparts in the PNP.

“Bohol has its share of drug problem because of the many islands comprising it. It is accessible from Cebu, Leyte, and Mindanao,” he said.
