MANDAUE CITY, Cebu - A suspected party drug dealer was shot dead at Highway Seno here, Wednesday.

Neil Benjamin Yap was shot while he was in his car, and his assailants were on board a black motorcycle, witnesses said.

Police Major Aldrin Villacampa, chief of Mandaue City Police Station 1, said Yap was arrested in January 2018 for possessing and selling party drugs during a dance party. 

He was also reportedly part of the party drugs matrix released by the police last month. His ambush may be linked to his drug involvement, police say.
