According to the Facebook page Aksyonradyo Iloilo, Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, Senator Franklin Drilon and Mar Roxas were tagged as drug protectors or the so-called narcopoliticians.
Top drug lord Ricky Serenio revealed on his sworn affidavit signed on October 18, 2017 that Mabilog, Drilon and Roxas were drug protectors in the Visayan region.
That in this affidavit I will identify the personalities involved and narate the facts and circumstances surrounding the drug trade propagated by the so-called narcopoliticians in the Visayan region. I am referring to the druglords being protected by none other than Mar Roxas and Franklin Drilon, who had the plan of controlling the illegal drug business in the Western Visayas-Panay/Negros,” Serenio wrote on his affidavit.
That Mar Roxas and Franklin Drilon are the political patrons of Iloilo Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog who is closely connected to the two as shown in the political inclination of the city which is a “pro-yellow” during the elections in 2016. However, there is a deeper reason to that affiliation. Mayor Mabilog is the indefatigable protector/strong supporter of the former druglord Melvin Odicta, Sr. who formed his famous conjugal illegal drug operations with his wife Merriam Odicta, operating centrally in Iloilo City making it the most “shabulized” City in the country,” Serenio added.
That while they consider me as a useful and a potential go-to person, this Roxas-Drilon drug scheme in partnership with Melvin Odicta was designed to take over the drug trade in Negros by kicking out Berya Tolentino and Camaria from their dominance as local drug suppliers. Being in power with close association to the PNP, it was easy for the Roxas-Drilon tandem to paralyze, and eventually overthrow the Berya-Camaria drug operations and wipe out these groups from operating in the Negros Island, the main objective of which is to turn over the drug operations in Negros to Odicta. Indeed, the Negros market is bigger than in Panay or Iloilo as confirmed in the declaration of Pres. Duterte that the NIR is No. 3 as most drug affected in the country,” he stated.
