From the Philippine News Agency (Mar 4, 2019): Hunt on for killers of NoCot police intel officer
Police in North Cotabato province are hunting down two men who ambushed and killed a police intelligence officer in Carmen town over the weekend.
Lt. Col. Bernard Tayong, North Cotabato police spokesperson, said the ambush on Saturday of Cpl. Resahemer Dolano, intelligence chief of the Carmen police, in Barangay Manarapan of the town was “work-related”.
Police teams, backed by elements of the Army’s 7th Infantry Battalion, are now hunting down the suspects whose facial description and identification were provided by civilians.
He said Dolano, 32, was driving his multicab vehicle when tailed and fired upon by a motorcycle riding-in-tandem at about 7 a.m.
“Dolano was conducting surveillance activities on suspected carnappers in the borders of Barangays Manarapan and Aroman when ambushed,” Tayong told reporters here Monday.
Responding village officials rushed the officer to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
