Defense Minister Luis Cresencio Sandoval has revealed that at least 29 people have died in hostilities that were started by an operation to apprehend a son of imprisoned Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in the Sinaloa state of northwest Mexico. According to Sandoval, who was quoted by the Xinhua news agency, 35 people were injured as well as 19 assailants and 10 military personnel during the capture of Ovidio Guzman on Thursday.Armed confrontations and heavy gunfire were exchanged in the Jesus Maria neighbourhood of the city of Culiacan as a result of the effort to apprehend Ovidio Guzman, the head of the Sinaloa drug cartel.
Ovidio Guzman was detained for a number of offences, including the possession of military weapons and attempted murder, according to Interior Minister Adan Augusto Lopez. The US demanded Ovidio Guzman’s extradition back in September 2019, according to Foreign Affairs Minister Marcelo Ebrard, who also noted that the procedure could take several weeks.
According to Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, US authorities must first present the evidence they have against Ovidio Guzman to a Mexican judge, who will then determine whether to move forward with the extradition request. According to news reports, Ovidio Guzman is accused of conspiring to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana in the US.
