Death and controversy apparently follows Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido wherever he goes.
Espenido is presently the police chief of OzamizCity whose mayor, Reynaldo Parojinog Sr., was killed in a pre-dawn raid by a staff from the Criminal Investigation a detection Group Region 10 (CIDG-10).
Only 9 months in the past ,Espenido was the police chief of Albuera, Leyte when the city mayor, Rolando Espinosa, was gunned down in a pre-dawn raid in his jail cell by a CIDG-Eight staff led by the controversial Supt. Marvin Marcos.
Espenido was transferred to Ozamiz City final December, or a month after Espinosa was gunned down. Espenido himself was stunned why he was shuffled when he was in the midst of a crackdown on unlawful medicine.
Interestingly, Espenido was serving a suspension lower than two weeks in the past earlier than the killing of Parojinog Sunday.
Last July 13, Philippine National Police Chief Batodela Rosa lifted Espenido’s 90-day suspension arising from a grievance by Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez (who wasn’t amused by Espenido’s accusation that he was a drug protector of Espinosa and his son Kerwin) .
July 14, Parojino and his daughter, Vice Mayor Nova Parojinog, offered Espenido with a certificates of commendation for his “efforts, time and professionalism.”
