Sultan Kudarat Mayor Mastura dangles rewards to catch drug suspects


To expedite the arrest of pushers and other personalities involved in the illegal drug trade, Sultan Kudarat Shameen Mastura is now offering cash rewards to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of such individuals.

The politiko said the cash incentives will help the police and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (PDEA-ARMM) eliminate the drug menace.

An informant of a successful anti-drug operations will receive between P10,000 to P30,000, depending on the magnitude of the illegal activities.

“The informants will remain confidential to ensure their safety,” Mastura assured.

The Sultan Kudarat mayor has been pushing for programs that intend to help the town’s population of 82,080 people steer clear from illegal drugs.

His platform of governance includes a massive sports program, livelihood and skills training for the unemployed, and education.
