A militiaman was stabbed to death at Sitio Mangga, Bunguiao last Saturday afternoon.

The fatality was identified as Gani Sampuyung y Sariul, 38, a member of the Citizen Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU), assigned at an outpost in Barangay Dita and a resident of Sitio Malasugat, Sangali.

Sampuyung was stabbed by Fernando Sta. Maria y Paelmariano. He sustained multiple stab wounds in the body and was taken to the Mindanao Central Sanitarium where he was declared dead on arrival.

Police said Sampuyung together with his younger brother Randy were at the house of Orlando Francisco at Sitio Mangga, Bunguiao attending a death anniversary gathering during which they joined a drinking session with Sta. Maria and other visitors.

Amid their drinking spree, Sta. Maria figured in a heated argument with Randy that led to a fistfight. Gani tried to pacify them but Sta. Maria suddenly pulled out a knife and stabbed Gani several times.

The victim was rushed to the hospital while the assailant escaped. — Dan Toribio Jr.
