OkSi Gov. Gadiano safe after encounter between police, terrorists
Occidental Mindoro Governor Eduardo Gadiano said that he is now in a good condition after an encounter between the police and terrorists on the boundary of Bulalacao and Magsaysay towns today.
Gadiano’s office said that the governor’s convoy had left early before the encounter between Mindoro Police Mobile Force Company and the New Peoples’ Army occurred.
“Ang kanyang grupo ay naunang umalis matapos makababa sa bundok sa Sitio Qui-anay, Brgy. Naibuan, San Jose para sa isinagawang Serbisyo Caravan at Ugnayan sa Barangay bilang bahagi ng programa ng PTF-ELCAC,” the governor’s office said.
“Labis pong nakakalungkot ang nangyaring ito na ikinasawi ng ilang miyembro sa hanay ng ating mga kapulisan,” it added.
The governor also extended his condolences to the family of those who died during the encounter.
In an interview with DZRH, Gadiano said that they are still awaiting for the results of the investigation to know who were the target of the encounter.
