PDEA given the lead role in drug war

Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Aaron Aquino leads the destruction of chemicals and shabu lab equipment worth 10.6 million pesos at the Green Planet Management, Incorporated in Barangay Punturin, Valenzuela City on Thursday. President Duterte has ordered the PDEA to take the lead in the anti-drug campaign, putting the Philippine National Police in the back seat as it faces allegations of abuse in the drug war.
