P500-T reward up against Bacolor chieftain’s killers



BACOLOR, Pampanga–Town Mayor Jomar Hizon yesterday offered P500,000 cash reward for the possible identification of the suspects behind the killing of a village chief and two others on Saturday night.

“Nag-o-offer po tayo ng P500,000 reward sa kung sino man ang gustong tumestigo o makakapagtestigo para makilala at maaresto ang mga gumawa sa krimeng ito,” Hizon said, in a phone interview.

Rodrigo Tongol, barangay captain of Mesalipit, Bacolor; Merlito Pineda and Pedro Canlas, both residents of Madapdap Resettlement Center, Barangay Madapdap, Mabalacat City were killed in cold blood by still unidentified assailants on their way from work in Bacolor.

Tongol died on arrival at the Tiglao Medical Foundation Center in Barangay San Joaquin, Mabalacat while Pineda and Canlas expired upon reaching Feliciano Hospital in Barangay Poblacion, also in Mabalacat City.

Senior Supt. Oscar Albayalde, director of Pampanga Police Provincial Office, said the victims sustained several bullet wounds in the different parts of their body.

Albayalde said the victims were traversing towards Barangay Poblacion on board a barangay service vehicle driven by Tongol when they were ambushed by the suspects upon reaching Bundagul road at around 7:30 p.m.

Hizon said he is closely coordinating with the police authorities to solve the senseless killing of Lopez and his companions.
Hizon met with Albayalde yesterday and offered the reward to expedite the solving of the ambush-slay.

He, however, did not want to comment on whether the killing was politically motivated in light of the upcoming barangay polls this October.
“I will leave the investigation to the authorities,” he said.

A task force has been created, according to Mabalacat city police chief Supt. Ferdinand Perez, to lead the investigation.
Meanwhile, Hizon said he will also assist the family of Lopez and provide scholarship grants to his children. ● Marna Dagumboy-del Rosario & Rudy Abular
