 Guballa and Suravasquez, both members of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines-Surigao City Chapter, said Dulpina, a resident of Nueva Extension, this city, used to deliver an undetermined volume of shabu” contained in packages to a certain “Luspe” in the town of San Isidro, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte.

 They said the illegal substance was supplied to Edgar “Loloy” Dulpina by a drug lord identified as a certain Ebong Paular known as the drug source of Totong Dulpina, a big-time pusher and elder brother of Loloy.

Paular and Totong Dulpina are currently detained at the BJMP City Jail on drug charges, it was learned. PSupt. Silvosa lauded Guballa and Suravasquez for helping the PNP in its anti-illegal drugs campaign saying it was inspiring to know that members of the press were also concerned for “change” under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
