The LPC-NPA has nothing to do with the killing of Jail Officer-2 Val Daniel Guzman Rivera, a personnel of Canlaon City BJMP, last September 7, 2018 past 11:00 in the morning at Brgy. McKinley, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental.
The NPA has not received any complaints against JO2 Val Daniel Guzman Rivera from the people of Guihulngan City and Canlaon City.
Based on the investigation of the NPA, the reason for the shooting was drug related. This is far from Guihulngan PNP Chief P/Supt. Mario Baquiran’s claim.
The Guihulngan PNP continues to blame the NPA on these matters which goes to show their negligence, uselessness and washing of their dirty hands in relation to the numerous killings of innocent civilians in Guihulngan where the latest victim was Heide Malalay Flores of Brgy. Buenavista, Guihulngan City.
The NPA is sure that this will only add to the list of unsolved cases and extra-judicial killings that is piling up in Guihulgnan City and the whole country.
The LPC-NPA clarifies that the group calling themselves “Vigilante sa Guihulngan ug tibuok isla sa negros” (“Vigilante of Guihulngan and Negros Island”) is not a member of Leonardo Panaligan Command-New People’s Army, Central Negros Guerrilla Front.
In fact, the “Vigilante sa Guihulngan ug tibuok isla sa negros” is in connivance with the PNP and AFP in the series of killings in the said areas. They are the legitimate targets of the LPC-NPA in order to give justice to their victims.
