TAGUM CITY – Suspected communist guerrillas shot dead a militiaman in a hinterland village in Laak, Compostela Valley, the police reported Wednesday.
Chief Insp. Conrado Canaleja, Laak police chief, identified the victim as Leopoldo Trinilla, 50, a Cafgu Active Auxiliary (CAA) member assigned in Sitio Candiis in Barangay Aguinaldo.
Canaleja said the victim was working at his farm with his wife when four suspected New People’s Army rebels identified as Dennis Rodenas alias Revo, Muyen Rodenas, Diego Rodenas and Ariel Badiang attacked him around 8 a.m. on Monday.
The victim, who suffered 9 gunshot wounds in different parts of the body, died upon arrival at a local hospital, he said.
“Prior to the incident, the victim had allegedly been warned (by the rebels) he would be killed if he won’t stop working as CAA member,” Canaleja told the Inquirer by phone. CDG
