Bata yan ng militar! NDF-Bicol says Rep. Batocabe’s self-confessed killer not their member

The National Democratic Front in Bicol said that the self-confessed killer of Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe was never part of their group.

Ka Ma Roja Banua, spokesperson of the NDF Bicol, belied the statement of Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Oscar Albayalde that Henry Yuson belonged to their group and instead said that the latter is an active member of the Civilian Auxiliary Force and Geographical Unit (CAFGU).

“Ang pinakabagong pahayag ni Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Oscar Albayalde ay bahagi ng malisyoso at paulit-ulit na pakana sa pilipit at baluktot na pagdawit ng rebolusyonaryong kilusan at ng BHB sa high profile murder ni Rep. Rodel Batocabe,” Banua said.

“Si Yuson ay aktibong myembro ng Civilian Auxiliary Force and Geographical Unit (CAFGU) sa ilalim ng 22nd Infantry Batallion Bravo Company na nakabase sa Brgy. Bonga, Ligao, Albay at aktibo sa mga kontrarebolusyonaryong aksyon laban sa masa at kilusan,” he added.

Banua alleged that Yuson and his brothers Andy and Arnel are military agents of the 22nd IB Bravo Company.

“Ang pagsuko ni Yuson diumano sa HQ ng 903rd Brigade sa Castilla, Sorsogon ay hindi dapat pagtakhan sapagkat ito ang nakasasaklaw na komand ng militar sa Albay sa kasalukuyan,” he said.

The NDF spokesperson also said that aside from Yuson, Rolando Arimado, Emmanuel Rosello and Jaywin Babor, who allegedly killed Batocabe and his aide SPO2 Orlando Diaz, were just following instructions from the PNP and AFP.

“Tahasang ipinag-utos ng Chief Commander ng AFP na si Rodrigo Duterte ang pagbubuo at pagpapagana ng mga death squad na ang pangunahing target ay ang rebolusyonaryong kilusan,” alleged Banua.

“Gayunpaman, ang mga kalaban sa pulitika ni Duterte ay target rin sa pamamaslang ng “special operation’s group” ng reaksyunaryong gubyerno na may nakahandang script ng kagyat na pagsangkot at pananagutan ng CPP-NPA-NDFP upang mapabilis ang paglalatag nito ng
pasistang diktadura,” he added.

Batocabe and Diaz were killed last December 22 after attending a gift-giving event in Daraga in Albay.

The PNP earlier tagged Daraga Mayor Carlwyn Baldo as the mastermind behind the assassination of Batocabe and Diaz.
