Summary killing in Bukidnon

The New Peoples’ Army claimed the death of a village chief in Malaybalay City who was accused of raping a health worker.

Patpat barangay chair Ciriaco Ganahon was killed in an ambush a month after rape charges filed against him were dismissed at the Malaybalay City Prosecution Office for technalities and errors.

The rebel group’s spokesperson, in a letter to a radio station, said Ganahon was found guilty of the rape charge and three other cases, by their investigators.

Ganahon is the third village chief in Malaybalay City whose killing was claimed by the NPA in two year’s time. Read the story here.
