The legal officer of the Department of Agrarian Reform regional office was stabbed dead by an unidentified man before the eyes of his horrified daughter outside the gate to  their residence at Perez Drive, Barangay Guiwan last Monday night.
Police identified the fatality as Arnel Wahab y Ong, 41, married. He was assigned at DAR-9 at  Sitio Lantawan, Pasonanca.
Wahab sustained multiple stab wounds in the body and died on the spot.
A police report disclosed that Wahab had fetched his daughter Ahanshaina from the Immaculate Conception Elementary School in Natividad Street, Tetuan. When their vehicle approached the gate to their house,  an unidentified man armed with a knife blocked their path and proceeded to the driver seat where he stabbed Wahab repeatedly.
During the attack, their housemaid Maryjane Irog-Irog, 21, a native of Pagadian  City, saw the incident and ran towards the scene. She dragged Ahanshaina and brought her inside the house.
The killer left the place after seeing Wahab dead.
Tetuan policemen led by Supt. Albert Larubis have launched a hot pursuit operation for the arrest of the killer. -- Dan Toribio Jr.
