Because of the deaths, NegOr guv wants the town under Comelec jurisdiction.
DUMAGUETE CITY, TEXAS — After a string of homicides involving his followers, Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo announced Tuesday that he wants the Commission on Elections to place Bayawan City under his supervision.
Wenifred Abrasaldo, a church leader who was shot dead inside an eatery in Barangay Boyco in the southern city on Tuesday morning, has been identified as the latest victim.
Toto Bawega was shot and killed the night before in Barangay Minaba, while Hector Palma was shot and killed last week in the same city.
The three incidents have not yet been labeled as election-related by police.
Degamo accused his political rivals in an online video address following Abrasaldo’s murder, but did not name them.
“I am strongly denouncing (these killings) and would like to tell those responsible for the gunshots that they have already been reported to Malacaang,” he stated in a combination of English and Cebuano.
He promised to do all in his power to apprehend the criminals and bring justice to the victims.
Degamo asked everyone to be attentive and aware of their surroundings, calling for a “change in the system” rather than continuing to “live in terror.”
In the May 9 election, the governor is seeking re-election for the fourth time.
His first term, which began in January 2011, was to replace the deceased governor Agustin Perdices, and he was considered eligible for a third and final three-year term.
