In an interview with GMA News' dzBB, Aguirre enumerated the cases of a Cebu policeman who exposed the narco-generals; the lethal stabbing of the alleged drug lord Tony Co in the Bilibid; and the fatal shooting of Espinosa and described De Lima as the "common denominator" among them.

"Ang lahat nang ito ay parang may common denominator... Ang protector at mga involved dito ay yung mga drug lords at protectors nito na pinangungunahan, ayon sa affidavit na ginawa ni Mayor Rolando Espinosa, si Sen. De Lima," Aguirre said.

Aguirre revealed that Espinosa listed De Lima in his affidavit as one of the public officials who coddle drug lords in the country.

"May affidavit si Mayor Rolando Espinosa; tinuro niya yung mga taong involved sa droga. Ang number one na enumerated niya ay si De Lima. Iisipin mo na although pulis o CIDG gumawa niyan, puwede din naman na talagang gamitin, nagpapagamit yang mga pulis na 'yan para patahimikin yung puwede mag-squeal sa kanila," he said.

Aguirre said that Espinosa's killing is a stepback for the government's anti illegal drug campaign since his affidavit can no longer be used to prosecute anyone implicated by it.
