CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY MAYOR Oscar Moreno announced yesterday a Two Million (P2-M) bounty for anyone who can provide information on the identity of the assassin who shot dead Barangay Councilor Roland Sherwin “Tawee” Uy, 45, and his quarry business’ caretaker, Samuel Pabalan, 67.
The two victims were at the quarry site on November 11 when motorcycle-riding alighted from the crime scene. The first suspect was the look out while the gunman approached the victims, and without provocation, peppered them with bullets in their head and other fatal points of their bodies.
In a statement sent to the media yesterday, Mayor Moreno said the brutal, cruel, barbaric and senseless killings on November 11 of Kagawad Uy and his caretaker must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.
“I ask the peace-loving Cagayanons to join me in urging the speedy and complete solutions of those killings, ” the City Mayor said.
He said when he heard about the killings he immediately proceeded to the site of the crime to get an idea how it happened and he observed there was no security guard in the premises.
He said that Kagawad Tawee Uy was absolutely unaware and even unsuspecting of the cruelty that would happen to him in that fateful daylight attack of the suspects.
“The perpetrator, together with the brains, must be held to account for these dastardly acts,” Mayor Moreno warned, adding that the City Government of Cagayan de Oro is willing to shell out a Two Million bounty to anyone who can provide information that would lead to the arrest of the suspects.
