Investigation further revealed that the problem with communication of illegal drug activity is still being linked to persons inside the jail.

“We will be meeting with delivery services to make them aware together with PDEA-7 so just to inform the management of this delivery services nga di sila magamit sa sindikato,” said Ligan.

Recently, the CCPO intelligence unit was able to arrest three high-value individuals (HVI) who were said to be new member of the group of alleged druglord Rustico Ygot.

Ligan said he will ask for the help and coordination of BuCor Director-General Gerald Bantag who is his classmate in Philippine National Police Academy.

“I’ll be coordinating with him (Bantag) para ang communication flow aning Ygot kung unsa man ang gamit niya maputol,” said Ligan. — GMR (FREEMAN)
