Leni Robredo Visits Wake Of Slain Army Intellegence Personnel In Jolo, Sulu Shooting
LENI ROBREDO – Vice President Leni Robredo visited the wake of the slain army intellegence personnel in Jolo, Sulu shooting.
On Wednesday, July 2, Opposition Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan called for a Senate investigation in the ‘shooting’ incident in Jolo, Sulu last June 29. Policemen have fatally shot four militaries, including two officers, who were trying to locate the terrorists in the area.
The commanding general of the Western Mindanao Command (Westmincom), Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, has asked the National Bureau of Investigation to investigate what happened because the military and the cops have different versions of the incident.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday night, Vice President Leni Robredo said visited the wake of 3 of the 4 military agents who died in the ‘shooting’ in Jolo, Sulu. She met the family of Capt. Irwin Managuelod (33), Maj. Marvin Indammog (39), and Sgt. Jaime Velasco (38). The politician was not able to visit the wake of Corporal Abdal Asula because he was buried immediately following Islam tradition.
“All of them are young men who died in the service of the country. It was heartbreaking to hear their stories from their respective families. They had such promising futures ahead of them. My heart goes out to their loved ones and the entire Philippine Army who are all grieving for their loss,” she wrote.
VP Leni Robredo also thanked the commanding general of the Philippine Army, Lt. Gen. Gilbert Gapay, for ensuring that justice will be served. She also posted several photos during her visit.
