Hired Killer Rat His Patron

By Mortz C. Ortigoza

I dropped by recently at the ritzy mansion of a first class town mayor in Northern Luzon since I did not break bread with him for a long time.
I met there too some of his seasoned political leaders that spiked up and spiced up our conversation about politics.
When I told them about the audacity of assassins murdering this year politicians like former La Union Congressman Eufranio Eriguel, Sudipen, La Union Mayor Alexander Buquing,Balaoan, La Union former mayor and incumbent Vice Mayor Alfred Concepcion, and former Bayambang, Pangasinan Councilor Levin N. Uy, the mayor told me about the aborted murder hatched against him.
He narrated that a year ago somebody called him that his perennial bitter rival, who supports a relative for the mayorship, wanted to assassinate him.
He immediately contacted his police brass’ friends at the regional command and sought their help to unmask the perpetrator of the threat.

“Ya, I know that StingRay liked gadget. When my cellphone was surreptitiously taken by a theft from my opened shoulder bag in Mangaldan seven years ago, I told the incident to the then chief of police of Dagupan City where the device traced the location of my phone in Barangay Caranglaan of the city,” I cited.
