An alleged big-time drug trader in Baguio and nearby provinces surrendered to the Baguio City Police Office, June 29, after several days of hiding.
Accompanied by a relative, Abdul Raman Abdullahi surrendered to BCPO Director Col. Allen Rae Co.
Co said prior to the surrender, Abdullahi was on the run for days after a failed buy-bust of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency on Thursday at Upper Malvar St.
The operation led to a brief gunfight, with Abdullahi escaping.
Abdullahi told reporters he decided to surrender for his own safety after he was considered by government agents dangerous and armed.
He denied having fired at the government agents during the operation.
Abdullahi said he also wants to clear his name of the rape charges and violation of the Republic Act 9262 or Anti-Violence against Women and their Children Act that was earlier filed against him.
Before being committed at the Baguio City Jail Male Dorm, Abdullahi underwent polymerase chain reaction testing for the Covid-19.
Abdullahi will be alone in a cell while waiting for the result of his PCR test result.
Since March, swab testing has become a protocol of the Baguio City Jail as a preventive measure to avoid the spread of diseases among inmates. – PNA
