CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – A top-ranking official of the City Government has revealed yesterday that they are now monitoring a person of interest in the killing of a traffic enforcer, Mark Langam.
City Administrator Teddy Sabuga-a told reporters the police have asked for a CCTV in the vicinity which helped them identify the person of interest, who maybe the suspect they are looking for.
"We have now a person of interest but we cannot identify the identity yet because the police are still investigating the case," Sabuga-a said.
He said RTA would continue what they have started and no amount of threats can stop them from doing their duties and functions especially on the recent clearing operations and disallowing of tricabs, pedicabs and tricycles plying the national highways.
Major Ivan Viñas, Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) spokesperson said they are now carefully reviewing te CCTV footages to positively identify the suspect on the killing of traffic enforcer, Mark Langam.
Viñas said they are also conducting investigation at the crime scene so that they would know if there are those who have witnessed the shooting incident and have seen the face of the gunman.
Meanwhile, the City Administrator also announced in last Monday's flag raising ceremony that a cash reward of P500K is up for grabs for anybody who can provide information on the identity of the suspect.
"Nagmeeting mi ni Mayor ug iya akong giingnan nga i-announce dire sa flag raising ceremony nga mohatag ug cash reward ang City Government sa kung kinsa man makahatag ug A1 information sa real identity sa riding-in-tandem suspects nga nipusil-patay sa traffic enforcer.
"Hugot nato nga gikondina ang tinalawan nga pagpatay sa kauban nato nga RTA. Mao man gani nga giingnan ako ni Mayor Moreno sa paghatag ug P500T nga reward alang niadtong makahatag impormasyon kung kinsa ang nipusil-patay sa traffic enforcer," Sabuga-a said.
"Gusto kong ipadangat sa kadtong nagpusil nga dili moundang ang RTA sa ilang obligasyon para sa hapsay dalan sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro," the City Administrator angrily said.
