According to Bombo Radyo in an interview with Police Col. Henry BiƱas, he told the local media in Bacolod City that he doesn't have enough information in the Rappler report about the involvement of Espenido in the dr*** watch list of the President.

Police Regional Office 6 spokesperson Police Lt. Col. Joem Malong, on his part stated that they are still waiting for the formal pronouncement of the national headquarters regarding the accusations thrown against Espenido.

Two of the country's controversial news media outlets, Rappler and Inquirer reported that a total of 357 police officers and members of the PNP nationwide were allegedly called to report to the national headquarters in Camp Crame for the investigations on their alleged involvement in the illegal drug trades.

According to report there are two generals who allegedly saw the list of the President and reported it to the media. In the said list the name of Espenido was included but the generals don't want to divulge their names for security reasons.

Police Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido was earlier relieve from his post at the Bacolod City Police Office and ordered to report to Camp Crame but the national headquarters did not release any official statement regarding the relieve order.
