A barangay councilman (kagawad) of Muti was arrested after he poked a on a bus conductor aboard a Rural Transit bus at noon last Sunday.

Arrested was Yusup Ujajon y Hasan, 40, married. Confiscated from his possession was a .45 caliber pistol loaded with six rounds of ammunition.

Police said that Ujajon could not present papers including Comelec gunban exemption authorizing him to possess and carry gun.

Initial investigation disclosed that Ujajon boarded a Rural Transit bus in Curuan and asked from the conductor identified as Elizer Guadalquiver for a discount which was granted by the latter.

When the bus reached Sangali, a woman also boarded the bus and Ujajon asked again for a discount fare for that woman.

Guadalquiver issued a fare ticket to that woman in the amount of P20.

At this point, Ujajon became mad for unknown reason. He pulled out a .45 caliber pistol and pointed it on the bus conductor.

When the bus reached the checkpoint of the PNP’s RPSB in Mercedes, the bus conductor reported the incident to the policemen that resulted in the arrest of Ujajon.

Ujajon was detained at the Culianan Police Station pending the filing of charges against him in court. – Dan Toribio Jr.
