The National Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday filed drug trafficking charges against alleged drug lord Kerwin Espinosa, alleged drug suppliers Peter Go Lim and Peter Co, and four others for their alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade in Cebu City.
According to the joint affidavit by agents of the NBI, the group “conspired in trading and trafficking ‘shabu’ in Cebu City using cell phones, electronic money transfer and bank deposits, among others, from 2008 to 2011.”
The affidavit added that Espinosa was consigned between 50 grams to one kilogram of shabu by suppliers Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz and Lovely Impal. Jaguar, reportedly the top drug lord of Cebu, was killed in a police operation in Las Piñas in 2016.
The NBI also charged Reynaldo “Jumbo” Diaz, Jaguar’s right-hand man. Both Jumbo and Espinosa confirmed that the main source of illegal drugs was Peter Co, the NBI said.
