STO. Domingo, Nueva Ecija -- Another P100,000 bounty was offered by first district Rep. Estrellita “Ging” Suansing for the arrest of the killers of former Barangay Chairman Juanito Sana, who was gunned down by two unidentified motorcycle-riding assassins here last Sunday morning.
Suansing, in a Facebook message to this reporter yesterday, said she already made the P100,000 reward offer as early as Sunday after Sana, 72, her municipal coordinator, died at the hospital after treatment of two gunshot wounds.
“Noong Sunday, nasa ospital palang ang bangkay ni Kap sinabi ko na sa mga kapitan ang tungkol sa P100,000 reward,” the solon said.
This now brings to P200,000 the total cash bounty raised for the arrest of Sana’s killers after municipal Mayor Greg G. Andres earlier pledged the amount of P100,000.
Sana, a former three-term barangay captain of San Pascual, was shot twice in the body by two armed men riding a motorcycle while entering the compound of his residence at 6:45 a.m.
Provincial police director Senior Supt. Eliseo T. Tanding said they are investigating all possible motives behind the killing, including personal, business or politics.
He said they already have a “person of interest” but he could not reveal further details yet in order not to jeopardize their on-going investigation.
