This was confirmed by Punong Barangay Ed Albo who added that apart from said employees, some 123 drug users will also troop to said office where they will be required to sign an undertaking to abandon drug use.

"But this number may still increase to about 200 before the end of the day," Albo said.

The punong barangay begged off to divulge the identities pending investigation, but promised to bring the matter to the attention of the City Hall.

He also revealed that he was surprised by the turnout of drug users after they conducted a massive information drive in support of the national anti-drug campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte.
