Marañon, Ferrer offer reward for arrest of ambush suspects
Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. and vice gubernatorial candidate Jeffrey Ferrer announced that they would give a P1-million reward for information leading to the mastermind behind the ambush of Moises Padilla Vice Mayor Ella Garcia-Yulo.
Garcia-Yulo’s brother and nephew – former president of Association of Barangay Captains Mark Garcia and incumbent councilor Michael Garcia – were killed in Barangay Tinongan after their convoy was fired upon.
Marañon also sought the help of President Rodrigo Duterte to speed up the resolution of the crime.
The vice mayor has tagged her uncle and incumbent Mayor Magdaleno “Magsie” Peña in the incident. They are running against each other in the upcoming May midterm polls.
Ferrer, for his part, urged Peña to respond to the accusation.
