DAVAO CITY – Davao City Representative Karlo Alexie Nograles denied claims by confessed Davao Death Squad member Edgar Matobato that four bodyguards of his father, former deputy Speaker Prospero Nograles, had been summarily executed by vigilantes here.

“I don’t know what this guy is talking about. From the time I was chief-of-staff to the time I was elected as congressman, no supporter of ours or persons under our employ was ever killed due to politics,” the younger Nograles said in a statement.

“(I)t has never degraded into the level of physical or violent. That is why it is easy for us to set aside our differences and unite for the common good of Davao and the nation,” the lawmaker said.

He said he had suspected “that this guy is being manipulated by some people to only serve their own selfish interests.” JE/rga
