3 alleged NPA rebels killed in Masbate clash

LEGAZPI CITY — Three unidentified men believed to be members of the New People’s Army (NPA) were killed in an encounter with police in Mobo town in Masbate province Sunday morning.

Masbate police said in a report that while authorities were about to serve arrest warrants against Alex Macadat, Norman Rapera, Rico Nuñez, Joseph Lalaguna and an unnamed person (John Doe), who were all members of the NPA, they were fired upon by unidentified persons, prompting the team to retaliate in Barangay (village) Bagacay at around 4 a.m.

Recovered were two caliber .45 pistols, a M16 rifle, assorted magazines and ammunition and a sack of improvised explosive devices.

Checkpoints were established for the possible apprehension of the fleeing suspects.
