The Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group on Friday, February 17, released wanted posters of six accused security guards, including four with addresses in Negros Occidental, believed responsible for the disappearance of missing “sabungeros (cockfighting enthusiasts)” in the Manila Arena.
A reward of P1 million is being offered for the arrest of each of the six or a total of P6 million, the CIDG announced on its Facebook page.
The four from Negros Occidental on the poster are Mark Carlo E. Zabala, 29, of Barangay II (Poblacion) Hinigaran, and Barangay Enclaro, Binalbagan; Roberto G. Matillano Jr., 54, of Talisay City and Bacolod City; Johnry R.Consolacion, 33, who was born in Kabankalan City; and Virgilio P. Bayog with addresses in Oringao, Kabankalan City, and Himamaylan City.
With the recent release of a Warrant of Arrest for Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention against the six security guards involved in the disappearance of the missing “sabungeros” in the Manila Arena, the CIDG will be posting the identities of the accused, it said.
The publication of the poster of the six wanted persons was based on the proclamation of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla during his meeting with the CIDG and the families of the victims that he is offering a P6 million reward for the arrest of the accused.
CIDG Director PBGen. Romeo Caramat Jr. said that the posters will be distributed nationwide. They will be posted in all PNP units, places of convergence, social media, and websites of the CIDG.
He urged the public to help them in any way possible to apprehend the accused. *
