Cafgu member kills bro, sis-in-law over stolen bananas
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.
