The former police chief of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) took over the reins of MPD from Chief Superintendent Joel Coronel.

Coronel, meanwhile, became the new deputy regional director for administration of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO).

Anduyan, who was promoted early this year to the rank of Chief Superintendent, served as the Joint Task Group PNP Commander during the Marawi siege last year and received several medals and recognition for his commitment and courage during the five-month-long crisis.

During the arrival honors at the MPD Quadrangle, Anduyan vowed to intensify the operation against illegal drug activities in Manila.
