Suspected drug lord, Alvaro "Barok" Alvaro surrendered to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Tagbilaran, Bohol after his fellow drug suspect Jeffrey "Jaguar" Diaz was killed in a police operation in Las Piñas last week. Apparently, Alvaro is reported to be one of Diaz's next-in-command in the province of Cebu but surrendered due to fear for his and his family's sake since authorities were already closing in on him.

But before Alvaro's surrender, NBI Regional Director Attorney Jojo Yap said to reporters, "We actually imposed on him that before we facilitate the surrender, he should cooperate with us." And as so, Alvaro has spilled the beans commenting that he has given "a lot of valuable information on his network and his network of his competitors," based on the NBI agents' interview.
Though Yap refused to utter any names of police officials tagged by Alvaro, he comfirmed that there is indeed several policemen on the list. "I don't have the exact figures right now, but he mentioned several names, and unfortunately, I can't tell you the names right now because we are trying to validate and confirm those information."  

However, the list did not consist names of alleged high-profile protectors of Diaz and Alvaro. Yap said, "There were no names given as protectors because according to Alvaro or 'Barok', it was actually Jaguar who handles that aspect of their operation."

On the other hand, no fellow workers of Alvaro have proposed to surrender. Though Yap commented that the list provided to them was already plentiful in their campaign against drug operations in Cebu.

Currently, Alvaro was transferred to the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center after a decision from the courts, as Yap assumes Barok is "safe there."
