CEBU - Mandaue City's most wanted drug suspect turned himself in to the city police on Wednesday night.

Pablito Loberanis, a resident of Barangay Paknaan, is a known drug pusher in the area, police said. 

He also turned over to the police his gun, ammunition, and a small sachet of suspected shabu.

In an interview, Loberanis said he surrendered because he is scared of the administration of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.

At the time of his surrender, Duterte was in a nearby restobar in Mandaue City in a private meeting with businessmen and political leaders.

Mandaue City Police Office chief Senior Supt. Jonathan Cabal said many people are heeding Duterte's call to curb criminality and illegal drugs in their area.
