As the 60-year-old Macababad was opening the gate of his compound, he was shot in the head and body.

Lawyer Remegio Roxas, president of the South Cotabato/General Santos City chapter of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, condemned the killing of Macababad.

Roxas and fellow lawyers in the province have urged the police to dig deeper into the attack and give justice to Macababad.

Police are still determining the motive of the attack.
