From Tempo (Jan 16): NPA men kill former comrade
BONTOC, Mt.Province — New People’s Army (NPA) rebels shot dead their former member inside his house in Sitio Lobo, Tamboan, Besao, this province, allegedly on suspicion that he had been serving as a military informer for 25 years.
Senior Supt. Oliver Enmodias, provincial police office (PPO) director, identified the victim as Rufino Basilio Posdo, 63, also known as “Kak-ew,” of Dandanac, Tamboan, Besao, Mountain. Enmodias said that the death of the victim was reported to the police last January 11 by Dr. Dolores Dicdican of the Besao District Hospital, where he was brought after being shot.
Tamboan Barangay Captain Rene Ligowen told police that they heard gunshots coming from the house of the victim at about 10 p.m..
When barangay officials went to the area, two men came out of the victim’s house and told them that Posdo was punished for violating their law which caused the arrest of two of their comrades in 1989.
Before the two men left, they said that Posdo was killed by the NPA.
Police later gathered that Posdo was a former NPA member who voluntarily surrendered to authorities in 1989.
