LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Fear now gripped this highly urbanized city on election day following the killing Sunday night of a barangay councilor in the island of Olango,
Congresswoman and mayoralty candidate Paz Corro-Radaza on Monday assailed the ambush-killing of Tungasan Barangay Kagawad (Councilor) Jose “Sadam”Quiros who was reportedly her reliable political ally in the island of Olango.
“I will personally give a reward of P300,000 to anyone who could give very important information to the police and investigator that will surely convict and put in jail the person who shot dead, who helped in the shooting, and the mastermind in the death of Councilor Jose ‘Sadam’ Quiros,” Radaza said.
For his part, re-electionist Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan likewise slammed the killing of Quiros.
“I call on our Philippine National Police to quickly solve this matter. If it warrants, I call for the creation of a special task force for the PNP to solve this wanton disregard for life,” Chan said in a statement posted on Facebook by the Lapu-Lapu City Public Information Office (PIO).
Congressional candidate Junex Doronio strongly condemned the ambush-killing of Quiros.
Doronio called on the police authorities to investigate the tragic incident and ensure the swift delivery of justice for the victim and his family. (ai/MTVN)
