Army: NPA kills farmer

A FARMER was shot to death by alleged members of the New People’s Army (NPA) in Sitio Tuko, Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental on Thursday, March 14.

The fatality was identified as Jobert Albino, 35, of Barangay Trinidad.

Lt. Col. Randy Pagunuran, Commanding Officer of the 94th Infantry Battalion, said that at 8 p.m., Albino went out of his house to buy something on a nearby store when members of NPA fired at him several times.

The victim sustained multiple wounds that caused his instantaneous death.

“We strongly condemn this terroristic act by the NPA, which shows again their true nature and ability to kill innocent civilians without remorse or hesitation,” Pagunuran said.

He said the NPA are truly the masters of deception.

“They say that they are the protectors of the underprivileged and oppressed, but instead, it’s the people who are the victims of their atrocities. The NPAs took not only the life of the head of the family but the hopes of his children for a better future,” he added.

Pagunuran urged the community to strongly condemn the treacherous acts of the NPA.

He also calls on the citizens of Guihulngan City to be more vigilant and immediately report or coordinate with the local security forces in their area for any suspicious individuals or activities to avoid a repeat of this kind of incident. (MAP)
