Bambi tells po­lice to solve killings

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories - By Al­wen Salir­ing

Misamis Oriental Gover­nor Yevgeny ‘Bambi' Emano is urg­ing the po­lice to solve the what ap­pears to be sum­mary killings in­volv­ing sus­pected drug per­son­al­i­ties in his home­town of Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental.

Two sus­pected drug per­son­al­i­ties were killed while two oth­ers were wounded af­ter be­ing hit by stray bul­lets in a sep­a­rate shooting in­ci­dents per­pe­trated by uniden­ti­fied gun­men at Sta. Cruz and Mo­hon vil­lages, Tagoloan, last Thurs­day, October 5.

The gover­nor told the vic­tims' fam­i­lies to seek jus­tice from the courts if they think their rights have been vi­o­lated.

"I would leave it to the po­lice kung unsa ilang find­ings. And sa fam­ily sa mga vic­tims naa man mga ahen­sya nga pwede maduolan kung nag­tuo sila nga nay­atakan ilang katun­god,'Emano said.

Emano re­minded the Pro­vin­cial Po­lice Of­fice to be at­ten­tive to com­plaints from vic­tims' fam­i­lies.

The capi­tol's top of­fi­cial also urged the po­lice to co­op­er­ate if they are sub­jected to probes.

"They have to solve it kay what if kita ang nahitaboan we will be call­ing for jus­tice also. We are hop­ing that the po­lice will co­op­er­ate also when the time comes that they will be in­ves­ti­gated. If their con­science is clear wala silay an­gay ka­had­lokan, "Emano said.

Emano also said it should not be con­cluded yet that the shooting deaths were state­spon­sored since th­ese could also be per­pe­trated by those who are tak­ing ad­van­tage of the gov­ern­ment's war on drugs.

The gover­nor said he fully sup­ports the gov­ern­ment's anti-il­le­gal drug cam­paign.

"Posi­ble dunay gasakay sa Tokhang and you don't even know that those killed ev­ery­day are killed by the po­lice or crim­i­nals or same sa ilang grupo sa mga ad­dicts or drug deal­ers or some maybe per­sonal," Emano said.

"Pa­dayon atong su­porta sa kam­pa­nya kon­tra droga. I be­lieve that the pain we feel will be con­verted even­tu­ally sa peace­ful Philip­pines be­cause I trust the pres­i­dent even with the is­sues ug pag­pang­daot I still be­lieve his lead­er­ship that he would bring the coun­try for­ward,"Emano added.
