A cellphone video shows Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog-Echavez hastily trying to hide something during the raid conducted Sunday at the family home.
While the police were conducting an inspection in Parojinog-Echavez’ room, she suddenly took something from her green bag, and she held the item tight inside her clenched fist.
The police however insisted on looking at the item and they had to open her hands by force just to get the item; turns out to be a packet with something white inside.
The cops immediately put handcuffs on her, according to GMA News.
The Parojinogs have been included in the president’s drug watchlist and are alleged to the be city’s top suppliers of illegal drugs. However, they have denied the claims.
Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog (the vice mayor’s father) and 14 others were killed in a drug raid on Sunday.
Parojinog-Echavez accused the police of planting the drugs and firearms.
