0 338

Senator Richard Gordon has condemned the attack on Pangasinan Rep. Amado Espino Jr. and called on the police to hunt down the perpetrators.

Espino was reportedly injured when gunmen opened fire at his vehicle. His five bodyguards were killed during the ambush, according to Gordon.

“We just learned that former governor and Cong. of Pangasinan Amado Espino, Jr. has just been ambushed and is now fighting for his life in a hospital in Pangasinan. All 5 of his bodyguards heroically shielded Espino with their bodies and they all perished,” Gordon tweeted.

“The victims were all riding a Toyota Inova van with no back-up. This is completely unacceptable in this day and age, yet it happens with impunity. The police should be able to track down the perpetrators if they act fast,” he added.

He also urged Philippine National Police Chief Oscar Albayalde “to mobilize all police forces to track down the killers and bring them to justice.”
