Pacquiao's liaison officer shot in Koronadal City
MANILA, Philippines – Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao’s liaison officer was shot in Koronadal City.
Wahid Bualan, 47, sustained a bullet wound in the arm, and is recuperating in a private hospital in General Santos.
South Cotabato Provincial Director, Senior Superintendent Nilo Wong, said the 2 unidentified suspects riding in tandem on a motorcycle used a caliber .45 pistol to shoot Bualan.
The incident happened Wednesday morning in front of the Regional Office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Koronadal City.
Wong said police are eyeing revenge as the motive in the incident as the victim is allegedly a known fixer at the DENR involved in issuing fake land titles. -- Report from Anne Santos, ABS-CBN SOKSARGEN
