Roel Degamo condemns killing of Councilor Melodia


Roel Degamo said vigilante killings must stop.

The Negros Oriental governor slammed the gunning down of Santa Catalina Councilor Tonton Melodia, who was ambushed along the national highway in Poblacion. He was only 29 years old.

“There are those who are hungry for power so desperate to make everything theirs. We say no more! Don’t let them be stronger because of fear. That is exactly what they wanted,” the politiko said as he paid respects during the wake. “Again I express my condemnation of the shooting of Santa Catalina Councilor Rude Anthony “Tonton” Melodia.”
