Yari ka! Lanao village chief coughs out shabu


A Barangay chairman from Lanao del Sur is in trouble after authorities found him and a companion in possession of around P35,000 worth of “shabu.”

A SunStar Online report Friday (July 14) identified the village politiko as Abbas Rasuman, an incumbent chairman of one of the Barangays in Lumba-Bayabao town.

Rasuman and his companion Bantogaranao Domalondong were nabbed by Martial Law Special Action Group (MLSAG) in Opol, Misamis Oriental during a security check Thursday. A total of five grams of shabu was seized from the duo.

Also confiscated were drug paraphernalia, cellphones, and the village chief’s Toyota Hi-lux.

Military rule prevails in Mindanao by virtue of Proclamation No. 216 handed down by President Rodrigo Duterte last May 23.
