Arroyo condemns killing of AKO Bicol’s Batocabe
Former president and now Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo denounced the killing of AKO Bicol Representative Rodel Batocabe on Saturday, December 22.
The Central Luzon politiko said nothing can justify the murder of Batocabe, who was gunned down in a gift-giving event in Daraga, Albay. Batocabe was running for mayor there in the 2019 elections.
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the killing of an ally and friend, Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe. Nothing can justify his murder and that of his police aide. I call on our law enforcement agencies to conduct a speedy and thorough investigation to bring all those behind this dastardly act to justice,” said Arroyo.
“I offer my deepest condolences to his family and constituents whom he had served with much commitment and compassion,” she added.
