Lakas-Kampi-CMD leader slain in Surigao del Norte

Camp Rafael C. Rodriguez, Butuan City (1 February) -- A local leader of the administration party Lakas-Kampi-CMD was gunned down Monday morning by unidentified gunmen at Sitio Binggale, Barangay Banban, Taganaan, Surigao del Norte, according to a sketchy report reaching the police regional command and tactical operations center here.

The report to Chief Supt. Lino D. Calingasan, regional director of the Police Regional Office 13, identified the victim as Oscar Cayumo Anino, 55, a former Army soldier and a miner in Taganaan town.

Initial investigation showed that Anino was riding his single motorcycle toward Taganaan Proper at 9 a.m. when he was shot at close range by the suspects in Sitio Binggale.

In a telephone interview with the Philippine News Agency, Surigao del Norte 1st District Rep. Francisco T. Matugas stated that the victim was a local leader of Rep. Guillermo "Jun" Romarate (2nd District, Surigao del Norte).

"Isa siya (Anino) sa aming political leader sa bayan na iyan (He was one of our local leaders in that town)," Matugas said, adding that the killing of Anino could be linked to the May 10, 2010 national and local elections in Taganaan town.

Romarate could not be contacted for comment regarding the killing of Anino.

Field reports stated that the gunmen immediately fled after the incident.

Upon receipt of the report, Calingasan deployed police investigating team and scene of the crime operatives to thoroughly investigate the killing of Anino.

He also ordered the deployment of regional and provincial mobile force and Taganaan police force to conduct a region-wide manhunt against the suspects. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
