THE police are eyeing personal grudge as most likely the motive behind the killing of a village watchman in the province of Zamboanga Sibugay.

The Zamboanga Sibugay Police Provincial Office reported that the incident occurred around 8 a.m. Sunday in Barangay Tandu-Comot, Mabuhay municipality.

The police identified the victim as Usman Samson, 42, who died on the spot from multiple hack wounds.


Samson was allegedly hacked by Ahni Egasan and his brother, Assan, who fled and went into hiding, the police said.

Investigation showed that the victim was on his way home after buying fish when waylaid by the suspects and hacked repeatedly, the police said. (Bong Garcia)
