Due to their “poor performance” in the anti-drug campaign, at least four police chiefs in Negros Occidental will be relieved of their duty.

Their identities were not disclosed by Senior Superintendent William Senoron, Negros Occidental police director, since the relief order has not yet been issued.

Two weeks ago, police chiefs from Hinobaan and San Enrique towns were also fired because of their unsatisfactory performance in the illegal drugs crackdown.

On the other hand, the chief of the Special Operatons Group of the Negros Island Region police, Superintendent Maharlika Oscar Villasis, has been replaced by Superintendent Robert Limbawange.

However, NIR police spokesperson and Chief Inspector Dianne Catedral denied that Villasis was sacked because of his purported link to illegal activities.

Both Catedral and Villasis were lauded for being able to arrest the four top drug personalities in Bacolod City and Negros Occidental. Catedral said that Villasis was transferred to the regional headquarters “in line with his new advancement.” ASCS
