From the Manila Bulletin (Jul 25): 3 cops, civilian employee kidnapped in Surigao

Three police officers and a non-uniformed personnel (NUP) were abducted Sunday afternoon in Surigao del Norte town by men believed to be members of the New People’s Army (NPA), a report sent to the regional police office said.

An initial report received here stated that the three police officers and the NUP were on their way to a friend’s house for lunch at Barangay Cagtinae in Malimono town when they were abducted by unidentified armed men at 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

The report, which was sent to the regional headquarters of Northeastern Mindanao Police Regional Office 13 (PRO 13) here, also stated the abductors were believed to be members of the guerilla-Front Committee 1-GB (FC1GB) of the CPP-NPA Northeastern Mindanao regional Committee (NMRC).

Supt. Reynaldo V. Acosta, Surigao del Norte Public Safety Company officer based in Surigao City, identified the abducted policemen as SPO 3 Santiago B. Lamanilao,
assigned at the Surigao City Police Station; PO3 Jayroll H. Bagayas, and PO2 Caleb C. Sinaca, both assigned to the Malimono Municipal Police Station (MPS), NUP Rodrigo T. Angob, who works in the same police station.

“All abductees were in civilian attire (when they were abducted),” he said.

Meanwhile, PNP Director General Ronald dela Rosa assured yesterday that he would exhaust all the means to secure the release of the three lawmen and a civilian employee of the local police who were abducted by suspected communist rebels in Malimono town of Surigao del Norte.
