Units of the 4th Infantry Division are now conducting pursuit operations against four suspected members of the New People's Army (NPA) who shot and killed an off-duty Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU) member last Jan. 25.
Killed was CAFGU member Danilo Bacudan at Purok 12, Barangay Awao, Sta. Josefa, Agusan Del Sur around 2:15 p.m.
401st Infantry Brigade commander Romeo G. Gan said the rebels held Bacudan and a certain Darwin Laspinas at gunpoint at the mentioned locality for no apparent reason.
According to Gan, Bacudan tried to flee from his NPA captors but was gunned down hitting him in the right leg.
But despite being wounded, the CAGFU member still tried to seek cover, prompting the rebels to fire again, hitting him this time in the head, killing Bacundan instantly.
