A local drug syndicate leader was arrested by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in Zamboanga City.
Anti-illegal drug agents of PDEA Region 9 arrested alias Katindig in Barangay Recodo at around 8 p.m. last Friday by virtue of an arrest warrant.
A 45-caliber pistol was found in the suspect’s possession.
The suspect denied that he was the Alih being referred to by the arrest warrant.
Alih resisted the arrest, and insisted that he is a certain Corporal Ismael Asmadi from the Intelligence Unit of the Philippine Army’s Western Mindanao Command (WesMinCom). - Umagang Kay Ganda, April 16 2012
