The National Capital Region Police Office on Wednesday said no Metro Manila mayor is on the drugs watchlist of President Rodrigo Duterte. 

"Sa ngayon wala pong mayor na nasa watchlist coming from the Office of the President unlike sa ibang regions meron talagang mga politicians diyan. Dito sa Metro Manila inaamin natin na may nakalista po sa watchlist ng ating Pangulo yung mga city councilors down to barangay," NCRPO chief Director Oscar Albayalde said. 

He refused to say where these officials are located. 

Police earlier raided the home of Ozamiz Mayor Reynaldo "Aldong" Parojinog in San Roque Lawis, Ozamiz City early Sunday where they encountered resistance. 

The clash resulted in the deaths of Parojinog and 15 others. The latest fatality was identified as Daryl Parojinog, the mayor's cousin.

Mayor Parojinog was one of the local government officials named in President Rodrigo Duterte's narco-list. His daughter, meanwhile, was reportedly in a relationship with high-profile Bilibid inmate Herbert Colangco.

The mayor earlier denied any involvement in the illegal drugs trade.
