Cebu Daily News - - NEWS - by Ben­jie B. Tal­isic COR­RE­SPON­DENT

THE teenaged nephew of a no­to­ri­ous drug lord who was killed two years ago was ar­rested in a drug-bust early Thurs­day with packs of sus­pected shabu val­ued at more than P3-mil­lion.

Fiel Sec­re­taria, 19, was nabbed by mem­bers of the Drug En­force­ment Unit of the Pardo Po­lice Sta­tion at around 1 a.m. on Thurs­day at his home in Si­tio Proper, Barangay Er­mita, Cebu City.

But Fiel, who is the nephew of slain drug lord Rowen “Yawa” Sec­re­taria, de­nied own­ing the con­fis­cated shabu. He also in­sisted that he was not us­ing il­le­gal drugs.

How­ever, Chief Insp. Regino Mara­mag, Precinct Com­man­der of Pardo Po­lice told CEBU DAILY NEWS that thay have been mon­i­tor­ing Sec­re­taria for more than a month now.

Mara­mag said that they learned about Sec­re­taria’s il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties from a drug per­son­al­ity they ar­rested be­fore who claimed that Sec­re­taria was his sup­plier.

Mara­mag also re­vealed that the sus­pect was also re­ported by sev­eral con­cerned cit­i­zens on the Face­book page “Itug-an ni CD” of Cebu City Po­lice Di­rec­tor Roy­ina Garma.

In a press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day, Garma said that the amount of shabu seized from Sec­re­taria is proof that il­le­gal drugs are still be­ing ped­dled in the city’s streets.

Sec­re­taria mean­while, told CDN that he doesn’t use drugs but ad­mit­ted to tak­ing al­co­holic drinks and us­ing mar­i­juana.

Al­though he stopped go­ing to school three years ago, Sec­re­taria said he is cur­rently at­tend­ing the Al­ter­na­tive Learn­ing School in Barangay Za­p­a­t­era.

His fa­ther, he said, and Rowen Sec­re­taria are first de­gree cousins.

He said that the con­fis­cated drugs could be owned by his em­ployer who was al­ready ar­rested or one of the lat­ter’s trusted aides.

He also re­vealed that aside from him, his fa­ther and mother are also em­ployed in the house of his em­ployer.
