It is not too late for Tagbilaran City drug personalities.

They can still turn themselves in for drug involvement and pledge to change their ways, police said.

According to city police chief Supt. Nicomedes Olaivar Jr., they are still accepting the surrender of drug users and pushers who are willing to end their involvement in illegal narcotics.

He said that the drug personalities can also present themselves before barangay officials should they choose to yield and vow to stop using or peddling drugs.

The city police chief is optimistic that more drug users and pushers are willing to submit themselves to authorities following the arrest of drug personalities across the province and the killing of suspects who resisted arrest.

There are currently more than 1,000 self-confessed drug users and pushers in the city who have yielded to authorities through Oplan Tokhang.

However, there are still a slew of drug personalities in the city who have not yielded to police while some of those who surrendered are reportedly continuing to engage in illegal activities.

On Wednesday, city police arrested Dennis Kapirig, the number five drug personality in the city, who is a self-confessed pusher.

He reportedly continued to peddle drugs even after surrendering to police.

The Tagbilaran City police on Monday arrested two other drug suspects who have also previously yielded to police, Javaharlal Cagata and his nephew Kheven Balion.
