MANOLO FORTICH, Bukidnon — A security guard was killed while three others, including a civilian, were wounded when armed men believed to be New People’s Army rebels stormed the compound of a multinational firm here at around 6:10 p.m. Tuesday.

Capt. Christian Uy of the military’s 4th Infantry Division confirmed the NPA attack on the Del Monte Phiilippines Compound, also known as Camp Philips.

Dr. Taruc Larson, resident physician at the Camp Philips Memorial Hospital, identified the slain security guard as Nerry Alfredo.

Wounded were security guards Jofol Sumawan and Franklin Millanes, and civilian Mario Ayuban.

Lolo Ocena, an employee of Del Monte Philippines, said around 30 men arrived in two elf trucks and proceeded to the trucking compound where they poured gasoline on at least three units that were parked inside.  The trucks were immediately set on fire.

Ocena, who was driving from work in a motorcycle with two other co-workers, said that he was blocked by some members of the group, as he was passing by the trucking compound.

“The armed men did not identify who they were but they instructed us to park on the side.  They said that we should not worry because they would not harm us,” he said.

Reports reaching the 8th Infantry Battalion revealed that armed men also fired their guns in Atugan Bridge in Malaybalay City at the time the raid on the Del Monte Compound was being conducted.

    please double check your news..mas malala pa

    share from FB post:

    “My family, friends and all people in Northern Mindanao, just knew about the bad happenings there- my friend’s husband got killed caused by gun shot in Opol, couples got killed in Nazareth, bombing in Camp Philips Bukidnon and some places in Bukidnon were under NPAs control, etc. This is not the normal place we have. We used to have a peaceful Northern Mindanao. Can’t believe in all the news right now. Really sad and worried. :( Please refrain from going out late at night and help us pray for everyone’s safety.”

    Those terrorists were there for 30 minutes and there is a nearby police training facility and checkpoints at Alae which is like 10 minutes or less away. Where the heck were the police when this happened!

    Those NPA terrorists were extorting revolutionary taxes for years and they got back at del monte for not giving in to extortion. This is e first time this has happened on such a scale in the company’s 87 year history.

    Those terrorists should be made to pay for this atrocity.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/MDQ32ZP3BWKBTSUDY3RBMTXNUU Pao

    The police commander too in Alae should be relieved of duty for failing to respond. What happened to the response time of the PNP? How incompetent!

  • Keeper242

    NPA = EXTORTIONIST

  • Luka Munyita

    The NPAs are becoming more and more desperate na kahit civilian pinapaslang. Para ano? Para sabihing anjan pa rin sila? Pretending to be strong when actually weak ika nga. Kamakailan lang minasaker nila yung mga sibilyan at isang pulis sa La Castellana Negros Occidental. Sa ginawa nilang sunod na sunod na pagpaslang at pangdadanay sa sibilyan, the more they will lose support.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EGVP3UL7WAF3VAZII55S74TMQQ yahoo-EGVP3UL7WAF3VAZII55S74TMQQ

    Mr. President, do something about these NPA, especially in Batangas province.

    • Luka Munyita

      the president is doing his best. Paubos na po ang mga salot na NPA sa Southern Luzon. Kahuhuli nga lang ng isa pang lider nila. Dapat tayo manawagan sa mga kakandidato na wag magbigay sa mga bandidong NPA. Maging babala sana tong mga pinaggagawa ng mga terrorista sa kanila. Kung walang supporta sa extortion, kahit ilang beses pa silang manira ng ari-arian, mauubos din sila.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EGVP3UL7WAF3VAZII55S74TMQQ yahoo-EGVP3UL7WAF3VAZII55S74TMQQ

    I challenge the NPA to get rid of the trapos in the cabinet.  Burn their mansions and luxury vehicles!  Unfortunately di nyo kaya, kasi puny kayo.  Ang kaya nyo lang yung mga maliliit na tao na nagtatrabaho nang marangal.  And that makes you terrorists.

  • Luka Munyita

    The NPAs are currently targeting civilians. Kasi nga gusto nilang patunayan na malakas pa sila. Kung sibilyan kasi, hindi makalaban. Hindi na kaya ng NPA na makipagbakbakan sa mga batalyon ng sundalo. Simple lang po ang solusyon para maubos sila. WAG MAGBIGAY NG PERA SA KANILA KAHIT MANIRA PA SILA NG ARI-ARIAN. kasi pag binigyan mo, they will remain at patuloy na maghahasik ng lagim. Temporary lang yang pangaatake nila kung wala nang magbigay sa kanila. Pag wala silang makukuhang pera, unti-unti silang maglalaho.

  • kinutil

    ANG mga NPA walang pakialam yan kong masama ka okon mabuti ang mahalaga sa kanila na kapag kinikikilan ka nila magbigay ka kaagad kapag hindi susunugin ang iyong ariarian okon papatayin ka nila. walang pagkakaiba yan sa ABU SAYAP ang abu sayap mangindnap kapag hindi magbayad papatayin at ang NPA naman mangingikil kon hindi magbigay PAPATAYIN okon susunugin ang ariarian.

    Call me crazy but I am waiting for Teddy Casino, Anakbayan, Bayan Muna and KARAPATAN to denounce the NPA attack on Bukidnon which killed one security guard, harmed another guard and an innocent civilian as well as for disrupting the livelihood of many families. Curious lang ako because not doing this denouncement would make them look like hypocrites. No offense intended.

    Kung gusto niyong mapilitan ang mga organisayong yan  at malagay sa nakakatawang sitwasyon kung saan they denounce their ally (NPA) post niyo abaove statement sa facebook niyo. hahahah I

    I wish the Philippines will follow what the Sri Lanka did to their Tamil rebels – annihilate them to extinction. Now Sri Lanka is on their unprecedented growth.
