Authorities have recorded the first election-related crime in this year’s poll season after a barangay chairman in Tanza, Cavite was shot dead by gunmen riding-in-tandem on April 14, Saturday.

The slain barangay chairman was identified as Leonilo Arbonido, 59, the captain of Barangay Julugan VI.

2 African Drug Syndicate members nabbed by PDEA in Cavite

by UNTV   |   Posted on Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

 

Based on the intelligence report, the two African Drug Syndicate (ADS) members are allegedly involved in the wide distribution of shabu in Bicol Region and Calabarzon.

 

MANILA, Philippines — Eleven sachets of suspected shabu were confiscated by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) in two Nigerians who are alleged members of African Drug Syndicate (ADS) in an entrapment operation in Bacoor, Cavite last Friday afternoon.

The sachets were hidden inside cellphone charger adapter.

However, only two of the 11 sachets contained shabu while others contained a chemical compound that was not classified as a dangerous drug based on the screening and confirmatory test made by PDEA.

“Ang assessment ng PDEA, indeed nagkakahirapan ng suplay ng shabu kaya nandadaya na ang mga tao, itong mga pusher,” said PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino.

(PDEA’s assessment reveals that supply of shabu is indeed getting harder to find that’s why pushers are forced to fake it.)

The suspects were identified as Agu Austin Chukwuebuka and Nkwocha Chimaobi.

They fully denied the allegations against them.

“I’m just a student. I don’t know anything about this,” said Chukwuebuka.

“I don’t know anything about the drug. This is my first time to see drugs. I don’t do any illegal business, I’m a student of course and I’m sponsored by my family,” said Chimaobi.

Based on the intelligence report, the two ADS members are allegedly involved in the wide distribution of shabu in Bicol Region and Calabarzon.

They are facing charges for violating Section 5 of Article 2 of Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.

The operatives found the two after apprehending suspected big-time drug lord, Olivia Encinas, as well as two other ADS members during the previous year. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

Wishful Hacel Bartolome, more motivated to battle in the grand finals

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — Cavite is known to be the historical capital of the Philippines because it is the birthplace of Philippine independence.

Another history is being made in the province as Caviteña Hacel Bartolome continues her journey to be the first Wishcovery Grand Champion.

Caviteños gave a warm welcome to Wishful grand finalist Hacel in her hometown concert, Monday, in Bacoor Strike Gymnasium.

“Syempre, si Hacel may puso and then born to be a singer. Golden voice of Cavite!” said members of Acers, Hacel’s fans club.

(Of course, Hacel has a heart and is born to be a singer, golden voice of Cavite!)

“Lodi ng buong Cavite. Iyan kasi nga iyong boses niya talagang mapapa-ahh, mapapa-ganun ka talaga,” they added.

(She’s Cavite’s idol because her voice is unique.)

Hacel said the love she received from her kababayans gives her more reason to fight for the win in the grand finals.

“Sobrang saya po tsaka sobrang di ko talaga inasahan. Ang daming tao. Ang daming sumupport po,” said Hacel.

(I’m so happy and I really did not expect it. There are a lot of people and supporters. I think I need to win. I need to push. Apart from giving my best, I need to fight. We will fight in the grand finals.)

“Parang kailangan ko nang manalo. Kailangan ko nang ma-push. Kailangan ko nang talagang bukod sa ibigay iyong best ay kailangan ko na pong lumaban. Lalaban po tayo sa grand finals,” she added.

Some of Cavite’s homegrown artists and bands were also present in the event including Jireh Lim, Shantidope and Plethora.

Meanwhile, as part of Wish 107.5’s thanksgiving for its 2-million Youtube subscriber-milestone, the station also granted wishes of Caviteños.

These include Gervacio Titong’s wish for a wheelchair for her mother.

“Pagsulat ko doon, naiyak ako talaga. Sobra talagang aking ano kay Mama. Naawa ako,” said beneficiary Gervacio Titong.

“Pwede ko na siyang ilabas-labas, ipasyal-pasyal kasi itong malaking bagay sa kanya kasi mahirap din pong buhatin siya kasi mabigat. Pasalamat talaga ako sa [Wish] 107.5 na binigyan ako ng oportunidad … ng wheelchair po,” he said.

(When I wrote it, I was really crying. I really pity my mother. Now, I can bring her outside the house. This is a big help for her because she is also hard to carry because she is heavy. I really want to thank [Wish] 107.5 for giving me an opportunity to have a wheelchair.)

Wish FM also fulfilled Renan Perez’s aspiration to watch Morissette’s upcoming first major solo concert.

“Nagustuhan ko talaga iyong singing prowess niya. Isa siya sa naa-admire ako sa mga kumakanta lalo na siya, bago pa kaso siya eh. Nakikita ko na talaga na magaling talaga siya. Ang Wish ko po sa Wish 107.5, bale more power and good luck sa lahat ng mga projects nila,” said the wisher.

(I really admire her singing prowess. She’s one of the artists that I really admire especially that she is new in the industry. I can really see that she is great. My wish for Wish 107.5 is more power and good luck to all their projects.)

Meanwhile, watch out the Wishcovery team as it tours to Carmela Ariola’s hometown—Batangas – next. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue

Suspect in the killing of a Grab driver, surrendered to authorities

by UNTV   |   Posted on Wednesday, November 8th, 2017


MANILA, Philippines — “Bakit di mo pinagbigyan na mabuhay siya? Ang dami niyang pangarap sa mga anak namin, sa pamilya namin, bakit mo ginawa? Napakawalang puso mo (Why couldn’t you have just let him live? He had so many dreams for our children and our family, how could you do it? You are so heartless),” said Brenda Maquidato, widow of slain Grab driver, Gerardo “Junie” Maquidato Jr., after facing the suspect responsible for her husband’s death.

The victim’s mother, Maximiana Amolato Maquidato, also lamented, “Sabi nga ni Lord magpatawad raw ng 777 times, pero parang di ko yata makuha kahit isa (The Lord said to forgive 777 times, but I don’t think I can do it even once).”

Maquidato was shot by suspect, Narc Delemios last October 26 in Pasay City, when the latter boarded the victim’s car as a Grab passenger.

According to the suspect, he was just supposed to steal money from the victim. However, Maquidato resisted, prompting him to shoot him in the head.

“Hindi ko po alam na siya ay good samaritan. Humihingi po ako ng pasensya pero mahirap na po talagang maibalik. Pera lang po talaga ang gusto kong kuhain sa kanya pero lumaban po siya kaya ko po nagawa yung krimen,” said the suspect.

(I was not aware that he was a good Samaritan. I am asking for forgiveness for what I did. But I know I can never bring back his life. I just wanted his money but he resisted and that’s how I ended up committing the crime.)

Delemios left Maquidato’s dead body in Pasay City, while he brought his Toyota Innova car in Tarlac.

“May two witnesses tayo doon sa pinagbarilan mismo at nakita din yung assailant hinila yung driver pagkabaril at natutuwa pa raw ito bago siya gumalaw. Parang may minutes na nag lull, parang kino contemplate niya paano niya na…bakit nabaril. After that nilaglag niya na lang sa kalye at inalis ang sasakyan” said PSSupt. Dionisio Bartolome.

(We have two witnesses in the area where the shooting happened. The assailant was seen dragging the driver after shooting him and even looking very pleased with it before making a move. There was a lull for several minutes, as if he was contemplating what just happened. After that, he just dropped the victim’s body on the road and drove the car away,” said PSSupt. Dionisio Bartolome.

The suspect also threw into the river the gun he used in killing the Grab driver.

Authorities arrested Delemios in Pasay City after he sent surrender feeler to the police and his mother-in-law.

“‘His whereabouts were also sent to us so there is a semblance of voluntarily surrender that’s why he was immediately arrested by the elements of NCRPO together with CIDG,” said CIDG Director PCSupt. Roel Obusan.

Delemios will face charges of robbery with homicide for robbing and killing Maquidato.

The PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group noted that Delemios also has a standing warrant of arrest for a murder case in Parañaque in 2014.— Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
