The Philippine national police chief warns that law enforcers will be running after more drug lords after clashes following a police search killed 15 people, including a city mayor who was among politicians President Rodrigo Duterte publicly linked to illegal drugs.
Eight people were arrested, including two of Parojinog's children - Ozamiz Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog-Echavez and her brother Reynaldo Parojinog Jr., officials said.
Meanwhile, lawyer Lawrence Carim, a member of the Parojinogs' legal team, has complained that he was barred from entering the PNP headquarters at Camp Crame to accompany the vice mayor and her bother Reynaldo Jr. who were flown in from Ozamiz early Monday morning.
He disclosed the raid resulted in the confiscation of heavy weapons like grenade launchers, rifles, handguns, improvised bombs and a huge cache of the illegal drug shabu or methamphetamine hydrochloride from the houses of the clan members located inside the compound.
Police said none of their officers was hurt apart from one who sustained a minor injury from an explosion.
Duterte has promised an unrelenting war on drugs, defying critics who were "trivializing" his campaign with human rights concerns and unjustly blaming the authorities for the bloodshed.
Police say they seized firearms, ammunition, drugs and drug paraphernalia from this residence.

Parojinog is the third Philippines mayor to be killed in President Duterte's war on drugs which has generated widespread condemnation from human rights groups.
The police were supposed to serve the warrant to search the Parojinog house and at least four other properties, but claimed they were met with gunfire and had to defend themselves.
The Parojinog family was among those named by President Duterte in his list of government officials involved in the drug trade past year.
Commenting on Sunday's raid, presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said: 'The administration vowed to intensify the drug campaign'.
Espinosa was slain along with another inmate when they allegedly shot it out with a police team sent to check on reports they continued to engage in the drug trade while detained at the Leyte provincial jail in November 2016. Mr Parojinog denied any such links.
According to CIDG chief Director Roel Obusan in an interview, the Parojinogs were brought to Metro Manila since the search warrants served by the local police were issued by a Regional Trial Court judge in Quezon City.
In October, Samsudin Dimakom, the mayor of the southern town of Saudi Ampatuan, was killed in a shootout at a police checkpoint on suspicion of carrying drugs.
