Cavite VM Lubigan kin hopeful PNP to arrest killers before burial
The family of slain Trece Martires City vice mayor Alexander Lubigan are putting their full trust on the Philippine National Police (PNP) to resolve Saturday’s ambush incident soon and hopes the perpetrators are known before Lubigan’s interment on Sunday.
“Bago mailibing (on Sunday), mabigyan na ng hustisya ang aming mahal na vice mayor (Justice should be given to our beloved vice mayor before his interment),” said Lubigan’s brother-in-law, who asked not to be named for his security/safety.
Cavite Governor Jesus Crispin Remulla, Cavite Vice Governor Ramon Jolo Revilla III and former Governor Juanito Victor ‘Jonvic” Remulla were among the early visitors at Lubigan’s wake and expressed condolences to the family.
Magallanes town mayor Jasmin Angelli Maligaya-Bautista and Kawit town vice mayor Arman Bernal also came to sympathize with the Lubigan family.
The family, through media, also sought everyone’s support in praying for the family “na malagpasan naming ang lahat ng ito (that we pass through these all).”
He also thanked the PNP “dahil sa patuloy na pag alalay nila sa amin upang mapaayos at mapabilis ang kasong ito, mabigyan ng hustisya (for their continued support for an orderly and immediate resolution of this case, and to give justice to vice mayor Lubigan).
Saturday’s incident also killed on the spot Lubigan’s driver, security Romulo Guillemer, and seriously injured another closed-in security, Romeo Edrinal who is now recovering at the intensive care unit (ICY) of General Emilio Aguinaldo Memorial Hospital.
Another security personnel, Jimmy Vicedo, was unharmed. (PNA)
