The New People's Army yesterday claimed responsibility for the ambush on a police patrol car in Taytay Panaculan, Barangay Canigay, Cadoni, that left two policemen dead and others injured on February 18.
The NPA warned civilians from riding on police and Army vehicles because they are legitimate military targets, and should avoid their being used as shields during rebel attacks.
Andrea Guerrero, spokesperson of the NPA Armado Sumayang Jr. Command Southwest Negros Guerilla Front, claimed in a statement that the ambushed PNP unit is well known for its protection racket of those engaged in illegal gambling and illegal drug pushing in Cadoni town.
The Armed Forces of the Philippines and National Police yesterday slammed the New People's Army for admitting that they were behind the recent ambush of policemen in Candoni, Negros Occidental.
“It was plain murder, that was done with treachery, and cannot be justified,” Lt. Col. Rey Tiongson, 3rd Infantry Division spokesman, yesterday said.

The university held its annual exposition for three days at the Robinsons Place mall in Dumaguete, as a “promotional tool” and to share with the community its accomplishments over the past years, FU president Victor Vicente Sinco said.
Featured in the exposition are academic, vocational and sports tracks, among others, that are made available as the university starts shifting towards the K-12 program as required by the Commission on Higher Education, Sinco said in an interview. .
