Cebu Councilor Reneboy Dacalos was shot dead by four unknown assailants in Barangay South Poblacion of San Fernando town on Thursday afternoon.

The slain politiko was allegedly linked to the drug syndicate of self-confessed drug lord Franz Sabalones.

The Freeman reported that Dacalos was killed only a day after Tocelio Ababon, a former Sabalones underling, died in an ambush while he was on the way to a court hearing in Argao.

San Fernando Police Station chief Senior Insp. Arvi Arbuis claimed that Dacalos was included in the drug matrix of Sabalones.

“He is in the drug matrix of Franz Sabalones and in the watchlist, we facilitated for his surrender thrice but he refused,” Arbuis said.

He added that they are looking at any possible explanation for a motive behind the councilor’s killing.
