Parojinog and 11 others were killed on Sunday dawn during an alleged shootout with policemen who served at 2:30 a.m. warrants of arrest against him and other members in his household for alleged involvement in the drug trade.

City mayors were "surprised and saddened" by Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog's death but they presume regularity in the operations of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog on Tuesday pleaded for the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption's (VACC) help on the investigation of the drug raid that led to her parents and relatives' death.

The officers were "met with volleys of fire from (the mayor's) security, prompting the Philippine National Police personnel to retaliate", Chief Superintendent Timoteo Pacleb said in a statement.

Dela Rosa stressed that he wanted the mayor alive but the latter's group tried to put a fight, forcing PNP operatives to fire back.

Police confiscated high-powered firearms and an undetermined amount of methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as shabu, from at least four houses of the Parojinog family, the city's information office said.

The Parojinogs were earlier tagged by President Rodrigo Duterte as part of the narco-politicians operating in Mindanao.
