Head of Cotabato anti-drug task force execute
MANILA, Philippines – The head of Cotabato City's anti-illegal drugs special operations task force was shot to death by two armed men riding in tandem late Saturday evening in his hometown of Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat.
The victim was identified as Police Senior Inspector Orlando Ramos Guira, 46 years old and a resident of JM Homes in Brgy. EJC Montilla, Tacurong City.
According to initial investigations, the victim went to Isulan, Sultan Kudarat to pick up his wife from their printing station business prior to the incident.
The victim then asked his wife to ride in a tricycle instead of riding with him on his motorcycle, because his wife had the flu. While traversing the national highway from Isulan to Tacurong City, and tailing the tricycle that his wife was riding, two unidentified men shot the victim twice, resulting to his death.
Recovered from the crime scene were two fired cartridges of a caliber .45 gun.
