MANILA, Philippines – Police arrested ten individuals posing agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) after demanding a P40 million ransom from the family of a Chinese businessman who was held inside his residence in Ayala Alabang Village, Muntinlupa City earlier this month.

The Southern Police District (SPD) identified the suspects arrested last November 11 as David Liao, 46, Fritz Cafino, 33, Ronaldo Zuniega, 33, Andy Sy, 50, Erlindo Auditor, 48, Roderick Ensano, 48, Bienvinido Vildad Jr., 47, Ernesto Baay, 45, Roberto Pacis, 65, and Jonathan Salud, 46.

Five more suspects remain at large, including 50-year-old Jose Congreso.


The SPD said the suspects were onboard a sport utility vehicle when they entered the subdivision, supposedly to visit friends along Maria Cristina Street.

They instead went to the residence of a 33-year old Chinese businessman and forcibly opened the gate after introducing themselves as NBI agents. 


The suspects held the victim until evening and demanded P40 million in exchange for his liberty.

It was only until the businessman’s personal driver alerted the village security guards that the police responded to the scene and arrested the 10 suspects.

Formal complaints for usurpation of authority, trespass to dwelling, serious illegal detention, and attempted robbery are being readied against the apprehended suspects.
