A security guard working at the hospital tipped off authorities about a certain Nilo, a resident of Babag 1, Cebu City, according to Police Major Nolan Tagsip, chief of the Abellana Police Station. Tagsip said Nilo was jailed.

Security personnel took action after observing the suspect to be restless despite still being admitted to the hospital. When the suspect was laying on a hospital bed, the security guard witnessed the moment two sachets of suspected shabu fall from his pocket.

The on-duty security checked the materials right away and requested assistance from Abellana police. In an interview, Nilo said that he and his companions were interested in the illicit substance that was being supplied to them.

Nilo was reportedly injured in a brawl in Barangay Panagdait on Sunday, November 6, and was taken to the hospital for treatment. On Saturday, November 5, the suspect allegedly went to a disco party in the aforementioned barangay with companions.

However, he accidentally collided with a local resident, which led to a brawl. Unaware that they were waiting for him as he made his way outside, the people he stumbled into allegedly mauled him.

Nilo chose to check himself into a hospital since he had wounds on the left side of his head. While a complaint regarding the possession of illegal narcotics is being drafted, Nilo is now being held at the Abellana Police Station.
