CEBU CITY – A son of a former Cebu town mayor was among five people arrested in an antidrug operation in Barangay Guadalupe, this city.

But Junie Gungob, son of former mayor Avelino Gungob of Consolacion town, denied that several sachets of shabu seized during the raid belonged to him and his companions.

Gungob, who is also a councilman of Barangay Casili in Consolacion, claimed that the drugs were planted and that they were even beaten up by the raiding team.

Arrested with Gungob were Clint Fernandez, his common-law wife Aileen Bornales, and two men whose identities were still being verified.

FEATURED STORIES

Fernandez was the subject of the raid by policemen who swooped down on his house on M. Velez Street, just at the back of the Department of Agriculture office.

Bornales is said to be a distant relative of Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz, an alleged top drug lord in the Central Visayas who was slain by policemen in Las Piñas City in 2016.

The suspects were detained at the Guadalupe police station pending the filing of charges. /cbb
