Less than a day after the 82IB of the Philippine Army left Iloilo on Saturday, the NPA’s launched a lightning raid of a police in Maasin, Iloilo.
According to reports from several media outlets, around 40 armed men attacked the police station of the town of Maasin, some 25 kilometers from Iloilo City.
However, when PDI talked to Provincial board member Emmanuel Gallar who visited Maasin, he was told that 70 heavily armed men raided the police station at about 10:30 a.m. and carted away an undetermined number of firearms and a police patrol car before making their escape.
Gallar’s story was confirmed by Maasin Mayor Mariano Malones. No one was harmed in the daytime raid.
The PDI reported that 5 of the on-duty policemen were handcuffed.
Also, the PDI wrote that the NPA’s distributed statements to local residents before fleeing towards the direction of Alimodian, Iloilo, less than an hour drive from Maasin. Well, that’s according to Google map.
Meanwhile, SunStar reported that the armed men arrived on board a dump truck and stopped by near the police station. [Sunstar]
If you watch the amateur video sent by a concerned netizen to SunStar, a blue dump truck can be seen parked nearby.
A concerned citizen captured the NPA raid on his camera phone from the building where he was staying.
The raw video footage lasted 3 minutes and 30 seconds and the video quality is much to be desired.
A netizen shared a photo showing armed men who attacked the Maasin police station with their faces covered carrying long firearms.
