Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is threatening suspected drug personalities to leave the city within a 48-hour ultimatum.

The ultimatum followed after Duterte issued a shoot-to-kill order against all suspected drug dealers, pushers and users in the area.

According to Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), there are around 250 drug personalities in Davao alone.

The Davao City Police is set to conduct anti-drug operations in the coming days.

Authorities have yet to release a list of identified individuals involved in drug trade.
