TUGUEGARAO CITY—The Henry Abraham Command of the New People’s Army in Cagayan province admitted killing a town councilor at his house in Baggao town on Saturday morning (Dec. 2).

Councilor Angelo Luis was killed at 7 a.m. by about 20 armed men who broke into his house in Awallan village.

Luis was shot three times in the head.


In a statement, the communist rebels said Luis had been spying for the Army’s Military Intelligence Unit in the Cagayan region.


Luis, in a Nov. 1 text message, had admitted receiving death threats but had shrugged these off.

“There are so many threats but I am not a coward. I spent my own money and I am alone in my fight against corruption in our town,” Luis had said.

Luis’ relatives have not yet reacted to the NPA allegations.
