KALILANGAN BUKIDNON NEWS – Wow, this piece of news made me sad. A barangay chairman in Bukidnon reportedly committed suicide due to his worries over the upcoming barangay elections. And he was an incumbent chairman at that!
Police reports state that the incumbent barangay chairman of the Ninoy Aquino village in the Municipality of Kalilangan, Bukidnon committed suicide Wednesday.
Investigators say that Martin Villaflor shot himself because of problems related to his campaign for re-election. They say that Villaflor worried about his purported lack of funds for his election campaign and sorties. Authorities also claim that Villaflor may have also been worried about the possible rivalry between him and his uncle, who also decided to run for barangay chairman.
Ang politics nga naman.
Condolences to the bereaved family.
