MALABON City Mayor Antolin “Lenlen” Oreta III yesterday offered P200,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killers of Kagawad Rodrigo Tambo who was gunned down by two armed men Tuesday morning.
The victim, a known supporter and political leader of Mayor Oreta and number 1 kagawad in their barangay, was shot and killed by two armed men in front of barangay tanod Lawrence Margalio, at around 8:32 a.m. Tuesday.
Chief Insp. Romulo Mabborang, head of Malabon Police Operations Branch said elements of Follow-Up Unit and Station Investigation and Management Branch (SIDMB) were directed by city police chief Senior Supt. Jessie Tamayao to conduct continuous operation for possible identification and arrest of the perpetrators.
Relatives of the victim described Kagawad Tambo as a good man who had no known enemies in their barangay.
Some of them believed that the killing was politically motivated since the victim was for five years the leader of “Arya Progresibo,” a local organization in the city that supports Mayor Oreta’s management and governance skills.
