ZAMBOANGA CITY – President Duterte has offered a P2-million reward for anyone who can give information about a policeman engaged in the illegal drug trade and other criminal activities.

“P2 million per head, special price because they are police,” the President said in his speech before members of the regional police command here Monday afternoon.


Mr. Duterte said policemen, engaged in drugs, whom he called “ninja,” have been committing treason.

Chief Supt. Billy Beltran, police director for Western Mindanao, said it was the first time they heard the President announce the reward.


“We will ask for guidance about it. I am sure the President has particular guidance to be released soon,” Beltran said.

Beltran said about “30 ninja policemen from (Philippine National Police headquarters) Camp Crame, Region 3, Region 7” have been reassigned to Western Mindanao. Of the number, four have gone absent without leave (AWOL).

About the same number from the region were reassigned to Abra and Kalinga, Beltran said.

“I would say there has been some transformation. There are those who have shown some changes,” he said.  SFM
