Cagayan de Oro Congressman's Former Security Aide Linked to Negros Oriental Governor's Killing

The recent killing of Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo has shaken the Philippines, and new details have emerged linking one of the suspects to a former security aide of Cagayan de Oro 2nd District Representative Rufus Rodriguez.

According to Rodriguez, former Army sergeant Joric Garrido Labrador used to serve as his security aide before being let go in 2014. Rodriguez explained that he was forced to terminate Labrador's services after learning from officials of the 4th Infantry Division that the soldier had a drug addiction.

"I immediately terminated his services because I don’t like working with people addicted to drugs," said Rodriguez.

Labrador's alleged involvement in Governor Degamo's killing has raised questions about his past and how he was able to become a suspect in such a heinous crime. According to reports, Labrador used to be with the Military Intelligence Battalion at the Army’s 4th Infantry Division camp in Cagayan de Oro.

The incident has also raised concerns about the prevalence of drug use within the military and how it can potentially lead to serious security threats.

It is unclear at this time what impact this revelation will have on the ongoing investigation into Governor Degamo's killing. However, it serves as a reminder of the importance of thorough background checks and vetting processes when hiring security personnel, particularly in positions of high public visibility.

The tragic loss of Governor Degamo underscores the need for continued efforts to combat drug addiction and other forms of criminality in the Philippines. It is the responsibility of all individuals, including lawmakers and those in positions of authority, to take steps to ensure the safety and security of all citizens.
