Camp Col. Rafael C. Rodriguez, Butuan City – The leadership of Police Regional Office (PRO)13 condemned in the strongest possible term the New People’s Army (NPA) terrorists for the ruthless killing of two police officers in Brgy. Antongalon, Butuan City early morning today, June 15.

PRO13 Director Police Brigadier General ROMEO M. CARAMAT JR. disclosed that Police Executive Master Sergeant Sherwin Roy P. Cajutol, 42 years old, and Patrolman Nazar A. Libot, 28 years old, both assigned to Butuan City Police Office (BCPO) sustained gunshot wounds in the different parts of their body.

Citing the report from BCPO, the victims were deployed in the area for intelligence monitoring when they were waylaid by around 10 heavily armed NPA members around 6:00 AM.

After being hogtied, the PNP personnel were dragged to the nearby farm of PCOL. CANILO A. FUENTES where they were shot dead by the assailants. Before they fled, the NPA also looted the dead of their short firearms.

Weeks ago, an intelligence report was received by the PRO13 on the plan of the NPA to attack the farm.

“We slam this atrocity that claimed the lives of our police officers. What the NPA showed was a blatant arrogance and disregard to the value of human life. The people hate terrorism. With stronger police-community ties, we will trace them even in their areas of stronghold,” RD CARAMAT JR. added.

He also ensured that the battle will reach in the court room through filing of murder charges against the culprits.

“Their death is not only a tragic loss for the families and the police force but also for the people who know them well as faithful public servants. Their records as uniformed personnel speak of their reputation and integrity,” the PNP Caraga top cop added as he expressed condolences to the victims’ loved ones.

PEMS Cajutol orphaned his three children while Patrolman Libot left his two children aged two and three years old.

Pursuit operations are ongoing against the NPA while all police units are on full alert and intensify intelligence monitoring against the enemies of the state. (PMaj. Dorothy M. Tumulak)
