Justice for Father Nilo: Duterte ushers in ‘spectre of assassination’ in PH – Baguilat
The kilings under President Rodrigo Duterte have become more frequent and more brazen the longer he stays in Malacanang and Ifugao Rep. Teddy Baguilat wants the public to be more vocal in its outrage over this senseless slaughter.
Baguilat made the appeal following the killing of Father Richmond Villaflor Nilo of the Diocese of Cabanatuan who was was shot dead Sunday while celebrating Mass at Zaragoza town in Nueva Ecija province.
In his tweet, Baguilat said:
The spectre of assassinations has taken over the country. Suspected druggies, media people, IP leaders and now even priests. Fr Richmond Nilo of Cabanatuan was shot and killed today while at mass. He’s the 3rd priest killed in two years. We must all condemn this!

Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate joined Baguilat in condemning the death of Father Nilo:
Unfortunately, Holy Father GOOD PRIESTS ARE BEING ASSASINATED in the Philippines;just this morning, Fr. Nilo while in a mass; last April, Fr. Ventura after saying a mass; in November last year, Fr. Paez, after he fetched a freed politucal prisoner from jail!
