Maj. Marvin Indammog was one of the four Army troops that were shot dead by members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Jolo last June 29.
Four army soldiers – a major, a captain, a sergeant, and a corporal – all from the intelligence unit of the Philippine Army, were killed by nine policemen in Sulu.
Police’s earlier version was that the four soldiers were on board an SUV that was stopped at checkpoint. Both parties proceeded to Sulu police station but afterwards the vehicle sped and ran towards Barangay San Raymundo where the gunfire unsued.
The Army’s version, the four soldiers who were all part of 11th Infantry Division were on an “official mission” and were aboard their SUV when Sulu cops “fired upon” them, according to Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Western Mindanao Command Chief Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana.
Army spokesman Col. Ramon Zagala said the incident was not a misencounter but it was a shooting incident.
The mother of Maj. Indammog, and the rest of the family, is seeking for justice for the death of her son and his three mistahs.
“Hindi nila expected na kasama pala nila sa serbisyo ang pumatay sa kaniya ng walang kalaban-laban,” said Violeta, the grieving mother of the soldier who will be laid to rest in Bulanao in Kalinga province.
Indammog was flown by helicopter at the camp of the Philippine Army’s 503rd Infantry Brigade in Calanan, Tabuk City.
