by Noel B. Najarro

Butuan City (1 September) -- Two unidentified masked men armed with firearms of unknown caliber torched the extension room of a high school building made of light materials and set ablaze its canteen, an hour before midnight, Sunday before making their escape to some unknown direction.

Moises Pinchenavis, of legal age, designated as watchman of Maningalao High School, of Brgy. Maningalao, Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte reported to Las Nieves Municipal Police Station that two armed men wearing a ski mask (bonnet) suddenly entered the school premises. He told the police investigators that he could not accost the intruders since both were armed, but could only conceal himself at a dark portion of the place watching their every move.

He narrated to the police that he saw the two armed men set on fire the extension room of the school building made of light materials. The suspects also blazed the school canteen before making their escape to some unknown direction.

After the armed men were gone, he went out of his hiding place and cried for help calling up the attention of the nearby residents who immediately went out of their residences and helped him put out the fire.

He then reported the incident to the police, which immediately sent a team to the area to render the necessary security and assistance and to conduct an investigation.

Las Nieves police is conducting a deeper probe on the incident to ascertain the motive, identify the perpetrators and file the appropriate charges in court. (Butuan Star/PIA-Caraga) [top]
