Local government orders the arrest of broadcaster's alleged gunman

TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, Oct 15 (PIA)  Mayor Allan Rellon of Tagum City has ordered the law enforcement authorities to arrest the primary suspect in the killing of broadcaster Rogelio Butalid for him to shed light on the incident.

He said Wrenters Azarcon  alias Ren-ren must see a day in court and explain the extent of the possible collusion to the killing of the broadcaster in December 2013.

Rellon revealed the wife of Butalid filed a complaint of murder against Azarcon based on the testimony of lone witness who came out in the open and identified the suspect.

A gunman opened fire on Butalid who was about to start his motorcycle after handling a radio program at the Radyo Natin FM, along Sobrecarey Street in December, 2013.

Judge Virginia Tehano-Ang of the Branch 1 of the Regional Trial Court 11 issued the warrant of arrest of Azarcon for murder last September 10, 2014.
Rellon said the suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous.

“Azarcon can surely shed light on the incident if he is arrested alive, a big challenge I give to the authorities,” he said. (PIA 11-Joey Sem G. Dalumpines)
