1 dead, 3 hurt in NPA attack on Del Monte compound

By |


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.

    “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.

    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!
