CAVITE, Philippines – Trece Martires Mayor Melandres de Sagun and 10 others were charged with two counts of murder and frustrated murder for the killing of Vice Mayor Alexander Lubigan.
According to PRO4a Director PCSupt. Edward Carranza, witnesses positively identified Mayor de Sagun as behind the killing citing political reasons.
In fact, Carranza said, Cavite Provincial Director PSSupt. William Segun who stood as among the witnesses is actually a brother of the gunman.
“Hindi lang unang beses na ginawa ng grupong ito ang pagpatay sa Trece Martires City. Actually meron kaming nai-account na apat na murder cases na maso-solve eventually dahil sa paglutang ng mga testigo,” Segun said.
