Police simultaneously served search warrants against the properties of Reynaldo Parojinog Senior, mayor of Ozamiz City, his daughter Vice Mayor Nova Parojinog and three other family members on allegations they were trading in illegal drugs, Pacleb said.

Duterte has singled out local officials, policemen and judges as part of a crackdown that has made him popular with many Filipinos but has been condemned by human rights groups and other critics.

(Updated) - Ozamis City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, his wife Susan and 11 others were killed in simultaneous drug raids early morning of Sunday, July 30.

Last year, police officers shot dead Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. inside a jail cell in Leyte, and a week before that, another mayor and his nine bodyguards were gunned down allegedly during a firefight on a road in Mindanao.

Officers recovered grenades, ammunition as well as illegal drugs in the raid, according to police provincial chief Jaysen De Guzman.

Members of the Regional Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), together with the Misamis Occidental Police Provincial Office and the Ozamiz City Police Station raided the Parojinog residence at around 2:30 am.

Two other mayors Duterte mentioned in his so-called "drug list" were killed a year ago.

In October, Samsudin Dimaukom, the mayor of the southern town of Saudi Ampatuan, was killed in a shootout in a police checkpoint on suspicion he and his security personnel were transporting illegal drugs, authorities said.
