CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Three ranking officers of the Northern Mindanao police were relieved of their duties due to “poor performance in the campaign against illegal drugs,” the police regional command announced on Thursday.

The relief came a few days after President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to the PNP 10 regional headquarters here.


Supt. Surki Sereñas, the Northern Mindanao police spokesperson, said those relieved were Senior Supt. Leonilo Cabug, the provincial police director of Camiguin; Senior Supt. Edgar Daniel, the Misamis Occidental provincial police chief; and Senior Supt. Archival Macala, the battalion commander of the Regional Public Safety Battalion. The relief orders were effective Sept. 27.

Replacing Cabug in Camiguin is Senior Supt. Rolando Destura, the outgoing chief of the Regional Intelligence Division. Taking over Destura’s post was Supt. Michael Pareja.


Senior Supt. Jaysen de Guzman, who is former battalion commander of RPSB in Ilocos region, replaced Daniel as Misamis Occidental chief.

Supt. Danildo Tumanda is now the new RPSB head. He delegated his position as chief of Regional Investigation and Detective Management Division to Supt. Marilou Tambis as officer in charge.

“This is an offshoot of several overarching reasons that include unsatisfactory performance in the anti-illegal drugs campaign, overstaying and notwithstanding their own personal reasons like their desire for a well-balanced career assignments in both staff and command positions, assignments outside the region, job competency alignment and the unpreventable compulsory retirement,” Sereñas said.

Two weeks ago, 12 chiefs of police in Northern Mindanao were also sacked for unsatisfactory performance in connection with the anti-drug campaign.  SFM
