Brothers linked to drug trade surrender to police
THREE brothers identified by police as major drug dealers in Lapu-Lapu City surrendered to Marigondon police Saturday afternoon.
Rolando “Landie” Oyao, Paquibot “Kipot” Oyao, and Donie “Danny” Oyao were persuaded by their brother, former Agus Barangay Chairman Remegio “Bo” Oyao to turn themselves in after “Oplan TokHang” was conducted by police.
Bo Oyao said his brothers were no longer engaged in the illegal drug trade for more than a year already after serving their sentence.
“Ako napasanginlan lang nga naapil aning illegal drugs pero tungod to sa away sa negosyo sa una pero wala ko anang illegal drugs kay negosyante ko (I was only mistaken to be involved in illegal drugs due to business issues before but I’m not with illegal drugs because I am a businessman),” Oyao said.
Oyao said he just convinced his brothers to clear their names and accompanied them to the police with his cousin, barangay Agus councilman Jun-Jun Oyao.
Fifteen others from barangay Agus that were also involved in illegal drugs went to the police to surrender.
Insp. Alcon Escosura, chief of the Marigondon police precinct, said none of the Oyao brothers have pending warrants but they receive reports that they were allegedly still engaged in dealing with illegal drugs.
The Oyao brothers were also suspected of being behind the killing of PO3 Antonio Inihao last February but none of the killers were identified.
