DAVAO CITY – Police investigators were eyeing communist rebels as those behind the killing of two militiamen in a hinterland village in Montevista, Compostela Valley early this week.

Chief Insp. Milgrace Driz, the spokesperson of the Southern Mindanao police office, said on Thursday that suspected New People’s Army (NPA) rebels were seen as likely responsible for the killing of Daniel Angog, 40; and his nephew, Jeffrey Angog, 39, both members of the Citizens Armed Auxiliary (CAA) assigned at the San Vicente patrol base in Camansi village.

The NPA was known to operate in the hinterlands of Montevista.

According to Driz, the Angogs were having a drinking session with several friends at Purok (Community) 3 in Camansi during a local festivity when four armed men arrived, and at gunpoint, tied the victims before herding them to an area some 150 meters away and executed them.
