Former DEA agent: Death or arrest of “El Mayo” Zambada will cause a bloodbath in Mexico


When “El Mayo” Zambada is not in charge of the cartel, the new generation of young drug traffickers will fight for 24 places in the national territory.

The arrest or death of drug trafficker Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada García will provoke a war for control of the squares, which would initiate a “bloodbath” in Mexican territory, assure federal officials and the former Chief of Operations DEA Internationals, Mike Vigil.

Due to the trial of Joaquín Guzmán Loera in New York, it is known that El Chapo has not been in charge of the Sinaloa Cartel for several years. The leader would be Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada García, a drug trafficker who has never been in jail.

Officials indicated that when “El Mayo” Zambada leaves the cartel, the new generation of young drug traffickers will fight for 24 places in the national territory, on North American soil as well as other parts of the world, and suppliers, according to Milenio.

On the subject, Mike Vigil pointed out that while Zambada García is in charge of the cartel, order will be maintained because he is a “highly respected” man.

El Mayo Zambada is the only capo who has never touched the inside of a jail. Los Chapitos, if they are there, it is simply because of their father Joaquín El Chapo Guzmán, but the rest of the cartel does not have much respect for them, ”he explained, adding that the ‘Chapitos’ are considered narcojuniors.

If El Mayo Zambada is captured or has a natural death, it will fracture, the Sinaloa cartel will fragment and then we will see a war between different groups, Mike Vigil, Former DEA agent

However, apparently, the disputes have already started because no one in the cartel agrees with the role played by the sons of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, who is imprisoned for life in the United States.

An example of this is the dispute in Baja California and Sonora between Jesús Alexander Sánchez Félix, alias “El Russo”, the main operator of Zambada, and Los Chapitos.

The place that “El Mayo” Zambada leaves will also open the door for the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) to try to take over the plazas.
