KIDAPAWAN CITY  – The local government of Pikit, North Cotabato on Friday offered P200,000 bounty for anyone who can provide information that would identify the suspects in the murder of a village councilman and two others last week.

“Hopefully, it will fast tract the investigation and bring justice to kagawad Anbdre Lumibao and two others,” Mayor Sumulong Sultan of Pikit said after meeting the town’s peace and order council (MPOC).

Lumibao, former village chair of Barangay Takepan and incumbent village kagawad, was in a drinking session with two others when two men riding tandem on motorbike arrived and opened fire on them on Sept. 30.

Sultan said the motive of the attack against Lumibao and his companions remained unknown as of posting but the MPOC chair hopes the bounty will help convince anyone who has vital information to resolve the case.

Pikit, one of the oldest town in North Cotabato and about 40 kilometers west of here, has been rocked by a series of killings, forcing the town MPOC to deploy more police and force multipliers along major town streets.

More police checkpoints were also established around town with the soldiers securing the periphery.
