COTABATO CITY, Maguindanao del Norte, Philippines – Police are hunting down gunmen believed to be behind two ambushes on Monday in Maguindanao del Sur that killed a village treasurer and a job order worker killed.

In South Upi, Maguindanao del Sur, Mayor Reynalbert Insular said he has already directed the municipal police office to work with the Army’s 57th Infantry Battalion in hunting down the ambushers of Robis Batitao, a job order worker of the municipal government assigned in road construction works.


At about 10 a.m. at Barangay Pandan, South Upi, unidentified gunmen ambushed Batitao on his motorcycle. He died instantly.


The motive and the perpetrators of the ambush remained unknown as of posting.

At about 3 p.m. on Monday, unidentified gunmen riding a motorbike shot dead Amerodin Ugka, treasurer of Barangay Inug-og, Pagalungan town, while he was heading home on a motorbike.

The ambush happened along the national highway in Barangay Bulit, Datu Montawal town, where police found empty shells for .45-caliber pistol.

Capt. Nurjhasier Sali, Datu Montawal police chief, said no one had claimed responsibility for the attack, although probers were looking at “rido” or family feud as one of the possible motives.
