PCol. Julian Entoma, officer-in-charge of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office, said yesterday that he is offering his one month salary, as a reward to anybody who may provide them any information that will lead to the arrest of PCpl. Roger Rubio, who was tagged as a gunman in the recent murder of radio broadcaster Dindo Generoso in Dumaguete City.
A police colonel receives a monthly salary of P80,583.
Entoma admitted that the image of the Philippine National Police in Negros Oriental was blemished by the alleged involvement of a police officer in the killing of a radio broadcaster.
Generoso, 67, a block timer of dyEM 96.7 Bai Radio, was declared dead on arrival at the Silliman University Medical Center, after he was shot several times by one of the motorcycle-riding suspects in Brgy. Piapi, Dumaguete.
Murder charges have been filed against Rubio, former policeman Cpl. Glenn Corsame, and Teddy Reyes Salaw, for the death of Generoso.
Rubio has already been marked AWOL (Absent With Out Leave) for his failure to report for duty, after he was implicated in the murder of Generoso, 67, Entoma said.
Entoma also said that he already ordered a stop in the release of the salary of Rubio, after he was marked AWOL.
Rubio is a member of the 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company based in Camp Leon Kilat in Tanjay City, but detailed in Guihulngan City, in Negros Oriental, among the augmentation forces.
Entoma also said they are still investigating the motive for the killing, to determine if it was personal grudges, as he was among those being criticized by the victim in his radio program, or somebody hired him to do the dirty job.
He reiterated his call for Rubio, whom he considers as armed and dangerous, to surrender now, to prove his innocence and to shed light on the killing of Generoso.*
