A few hours since the attack at the compound of the Governor in Pamplona, three (3) suspects were arrested by the authorities in the mountaneous part of the province. One of them namedropped Congressman Arnie Teves as the alleged mastermind behind the death of the Governor.

Gov. Roel Degamo was laid to his final resting place at their family’s mausoleum. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the widow of Governor Roel Degamo visited her husband’s wake and gave in to an interview about his death and the fight for justice.

According to Mayor Janice Degamo, she talked to her husband to guide her in her fight for justice. She stressed that her husband’s death as an “eye opener” to a lot of people on the status of the peace and order in the province. She also expressed that the case should really be focused on so her husband’s death will not be wasted.

“There has to be investigations done. I will see to it na makahingi tayo ng tulong sa Senado, Senate inquiry that has been something na, ang tagal nang na request, sana mapagbigyan,” Mayor Janice said based on the report.
