Maguindanao 2nd District Rep. Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu condemned the killing of a Commission on Audit (CoA) auditor in Cotabato.
“I strongly denounce the treacherous killing of Guiaria Bagundang Akmad who, together with her husband, was gunned down yesterday morning in Cotabato City,” Mangudadatu said in a statement Saturday.
According to Mangudadatu, Akmad is a “person of principle and integrity whose dedication and love for her family and work is beyond question.”
“Her demise is a strong indication that the rise of violence and disorder is upon Maguindanao,” he said.
Akmad was in her car with her husband when they were ambushed. She was brought to the Cotabato Regional and Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival. She bore multiple gunshot wounds.
The victim’s husband, who was driving the car, was unscathed during the shooting.
Maj. Rustom Pastolero, Police Station 2 chief, said investigation of the case is still going on. (With PNA)
