Cebu's top druglord Jaguar Diaz, bodyguard dead — Osmeña

Jeffrey "Jaguar" Diaz, tagged as Cebu's top druglord, and one bodyguard were killed in a Las Piñas raid conducted Saturday by Cebu police.

Cebu City Mayor Tommy Osmeña broke the news in his Facebook account early morning of June 18.

Jeffrey "Jaguar" Diaz and one bodyguard were killed as they were rotating among his 8 houses in Las Piñas.

He was tracked there by the Regional Intelligence Division-7 headed by Col. Rex Derilo and Regional Special Operations Group-7 headed by Labagnon's very own Col. George Ylanan.

In a recent interview with dyRF, Jaguar said he was willing to surrender to President-elect Rodrigo Duterte—who vowed to supress criminality, corruption, and illegal drugs in three to six months—and if given a chance, he would willingly help authorities arrest other drug personalities, The Freeman reported.

The shootout in Getafe, Banacon Island in nearby Bohol province that resulted in the deaths of suspected drug dealer Rowen Secretaria and his alleged cohorts as well as the surrender of other top drug traffickers in Cebu made Jaguar nervous enough to allow himself to be interviewed, according to a Cebu Daily News editorial.

In that interview, Jaguar said he was willing to be tapped as an asset to track down other drug dealers.

Mayor Osmeña did not believe him.

"His statement that he was retiring was a lie," the local chief executive said. "Surveillance revealed that he was setting up a new base of operations in Rizal."

Osmeña added, "Cebu exports many things, but we will not export that."
