BACOLOD CITY –– The grandson of the late Kabankalan Mayor Pablo Sola was killed in an ambush around 5 p.m. Sunday.

John Paul Sola, 38, was driving his McArthur type jeep, when four unidentified assailants fired upon him as his vehicle was crossing a bridge in Barangay Camansi, Kabankalan, Negros Occidental.


Police Colonel Romeo Baleros, provincial police director, said witnesses claimed that Sola’s assailants raised a clenched fist leading investigators to suspect that the New People’s Army could be behind the killing.

The killing that happened about 10 kilometers from the Kabankalan police station was reported an hour after the incident.
