Tugade Orders Immediate Firing of LTO Tarlac OIC for Alleged Involvement in Illegal Drugs

Wazzup Pilipinas!

“Kung involved kayo sa korapsyon, lalong-lalo na sa droga, pasensyahan tayo, sipain ko kayo.” 

This was the statement of Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade right before he directed Land Transportation Office (LTO) Chief Edgar Galvante to immediately fire LTO Tarlac OIC Rodel Yambao after being nabbed by the police for alleged possession of illegal drugs.

Yambao was arrested on Wednesday, 08 May 2018, in an operation conducted by the Tarlac Police together with the operatives of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

According to the police report, nine (9) sachets of suspected shabu, a hand grenade, and bullets for an undertermined hand gun were seized in Yambao’s residence in Barangay San Roque.

Yambao, who has been listed as a high value target, is now in police custody and will have to face charges on possession of illegal drugs and illegal possession of firearms and ammunitions.

Enraged after learning the incident, Tugade said "Kung mga corrupt nga hindi natin pinalalampas, eto pa kayang sangkot sa ipinagbabawal na gamot? Ang mga anay na gaya mo, walang puwang sa departamentong ito lalo na sa lipunan na galit na galit sa droga!"

Tugade likewise ordered Galvante to look into Yambao's profile and investigate if he is involved in any form of corrupt practices during his term.

Further, the Transportation Chief warned all employees under DOTr and its attached agencies that zero tolerance is imposed to those who will get involved in corruption, much more with illegal drugs.
