TABUK CITY, Kalinga – A member of the Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit (Cafgu) beat up then killed his brother and sister-in-law after quarreling over bananas allegedly taken from his farm in Pinukpuk town on Sept. 4, according to a belated police report on Saturday.

Rafael Madayag allegedly battered his brother Basiano and his sister-in-law Irene with a piece of hardwood then hacked them, said Inspector Carlos Damagon, officer-in-charge of the Pinukpuk police.


Madayag buried their remains at a vacant lot near the slain couple’s home in Sitio Sagongab Palong in Barangay Taggay, police said on Saturday.

The couple’s nine-year-old son managed to escape and reported the murder to village officials and the police, who collared Madayag at a checkpoint.


Damagon said the brothers have been feuding over the family farm. VILLAMOR VISAYA JR.
