STATEMENT OF GOV. MANUEL N. MAMBA ON THE KILLING OF SANGGUNIANG BAYAN MEMBER ANGELO “BURIDEK” LUIS OF BAGGAO, CAGAYAN
The Provincial Government of Cagayan condemns, in the strongest terms, the killing of Sangguniang Bayan member Angelo “Buridek” Luis of the Municipality of Baggao, which happened at seven o’ clock in the morning, today, at Awallan, Baggao, Cagayan.
This killing disguised as an act of patriotism pursuant to communist ideologies is nothing but plain and simple terrorism.
Our leaders should not cower in fear or be coerced to submit to the whimsical and capricious demands of these insurgent groups.
We share the grief of the family of SB Buridik, offering them our condolences and prayers for the eternal repose of his soul and for comfort in their bereavement.
I call on the proper authorities to conduct a thorough and speedy investigation and bring into the bar of justice the ones responsible.
This is also an earnest call on the members of the Cagayano community to support the government’s efforts to fight insurgency, especially in our province.
Done this 2nd day of December, Provincial Government of Cagayan, Alimannao, Penablanca, Cagayan.
