LUMBACA UNAYAN, Lanao del Sur – Constituents of Lumbaca-Unayan municipality in Lanao del Sur province sought the help of President Duterte to settle the political feud engulfing the town and save the municipality.

They also called on Bangsamoro Chief Minister Murad Alhaj Ebrahim, Lanao del Sur Gov. Bombit Adiong, and other authorities to help uncover the truth so that justice will prevail.

In front of the newly finished town hall, about a hundred constituents staged a rally on Monday, May 16, to show support to the town newly elected and proclaimed lady mayor and her family and colleagues who are facing murder raps.

Mayor Jamalia Dimatunday Aloyodan and some of her relatives are charged with murder raps in connection with the ambush in June 2020 of the late mayor Somerado Guro, and his wife Rohaifa in Iponan, Cagayan de Oro City.

The wife immediately died while the mayor succumbed days later.

Aloyodan denies involvement in Guro’s ambush

In a media statement, Aloyodan strongly denied involvement in the ambush and death of the late mayor and his wife.

She said she is a woman, and she could not do nor plan the killing of the late mayor Guro and his wife.

She also called on President Duterte, BARMM chief Minister Ebrahim, Gov. Adiong, and other authorities to help in the conflict in Lumbaca-Unayan.

Aloyodan, then a vice mayor, assumed by law of succession as mayor of Lumbaca Unayan following Guro’s death.

In the May 9 elections, she ran for mayor and won in Lumbaca-Unayan, a 6th class municipality composed of nine barangays with over ten thousand populace situated in the province’ western side.

The rallyists believed the elected mayor and her family are innocent and asked the people of Lumbaca-Unayan to stop spreading fake news, but to help instead to bring the culprits to justice.

Stop spreading fake news

Norjanah Undac Sharief, a women’s sectoral leader, asked the people of the town not to spread wrong information about the case.

“There is no truth that the Aloyodan family and the municipal administration are the culprits in the death of the Guro’s,” she pointed out, adding, “Nobody could ever pinpoint them (Aloyodan family) to be involved in the crime.

She joined the constituents call on President Duterte and the newly elected president and vice president (BongBong Marcos and Sara Duterte) to intervene immediately in this conflict.

The people of Lumbaca-Unayan needs peace and prosperity, she said. “Without peace, there could be no prosperity,” she added.

Political harassment

Re-elected and Incumbent Councilor Laurenti Espinosa said the case against the Aloyodan family is a political harassment. (See related video story)

Re-elected incumbent Lumbaca-Unayan Councilor appeals for a peaceful dialogue and settlement.

Espinosa said the case was already dismissed because the Aloyodan family especially the new mayor is not truly involved in the ambush.

He said it is re-opened as political harassment at the time of the election in Lumbaca Unayan which was honest, orderly, and peaceful.

Saying Allah knows that the Aloyodan family is innocent, Espinosa asked the people to help each other to solve this problem. He encouraged for a peaceful dialogue.

On his part, Mohammad M. Alim, senior citizen’s affairs officer, expressed heartaches in seeing how the town is disunited due to political rivalries.

Having worked with the municipal government of Lumbaca-Unayan since its creation in 2005 to the present, Alim said all the past and present administrations of the town are good. “The only problem is political grudges,” he added. (TRS Team)

  1. OPEN LETTER (please share) #JusticeForMayorSomeradoGuro #JusticeForRohaifaMuaGuro #LumbacaUnayan

    Ilang kasagutan hinggil sa ginanap na RALLY / STAND OUT SA LUMBACA UNAYAN, LANAO DEL SUR.

    1. Bago lang daw ang kaso. Ginawa daw ang kaso para ma disqualified sila. Hindi po ito totoo. Sa katanuyan po ay mahigit dalawang taon nang nakabinbin ang kasong ito sa Cagayan, hanggang sa ito ay maiakyat sa Department of Justice (DOJ). Mayron pong issued Warrant of Arrest thru resolution of DOJ. Ito po ay may legal na basihan at dumaan sa due process. Hindi po ito basta pagpaparatang lang. Harapin nyo po ang kaso kung tunay kayong walang kasalanan.
    Sinabi din po nila na ito ay case dismissed na, hindi po iyon totoo. Ang kaso ay on going simula nang ito ay naifile sa korte hanggang ngayon. Nagpakalat lang po sila ng fake news sa munisipyo na ang case ay dismissed na. Hindi na dismiss ang kaso dahil kasalukuyang may na issue na warrant of arrest laban sa kanila.

    2. Umabot na po ng 2 years ang kaso pero bakit ngayon lang kayo nag public stand out or rally? Ang ugat po ng kaso ay hindi konektado sa politika. Ito po ay isang actual case, matagal na po ito, bago pa dumating ang 2022 eleksyon.

    3. Ang PRESENT CASE po ay hindi isang Political Harassment, ANG KASO PO AY NAIFILE DAHIL SA PAG AMBUSH O PAMAMARIL KAY MAYOR SOMERADO GURO sa Cagayan last June 3, 2020. Clearly, hindi konektado sa politika. Ito po ay isang criminal case.

    4. “Phangudug tano kon piya piya.” Matagal na pong nasimulan ang investigation sa nangyari, pero ni isa sa inyo ay walang nakipag tulungan. Bagkos ang naririnig po ng pamilya ni Mayor Somerado Guro mula sa kanilang panig ay mga death threats simula pa lang ng kaso na umabot ng 2 years.

    Kung mapapansin nyo din po sa live rally na isinagawa nila ay puro death threats ang nanggagaling sa bibig ng ibang nagsalita doon. Ni minsan ay hindi po kami nagbitiw ng mga ganong salita laban sa kanila. Sa kanila po nanggagaling ang mga masasamang salita na iyon. Hindi po ito ugali ng isang inosenteng tao.

    5. Bakit pinagbintangan si Jamalia Aloyodan, Apolo Aloyodan at iba pa?
    Sila po ang tinukoy ng investigator ng kaso dahil mula nang ma ambush si Mayor Somerado Guro at ang asawa niyang si Rohaifa Guro noong JUNE 3, 2020, sa Iponan, Cagayan de Oro City ay hindi man lang nagpakita o dumalaw sa hospital si Vice Mayor Jamalia Aloyodan o isa man sa kanilang pamilya, hanggang sa tuluyang namatay si Mayor Somerado Guro noong June 18, 2020. Hindi man lang siya bumisita kay Mayor Somerado Guro o sa kahit sinong kapamilya ni Mayor. Mayron din po tayong mga legal na basihan at ibang mga ebidensya. Dapat ay sa korte nila ito sagotin.

    6. Mayroon bang taong hindi suspect na hindi man lang kinumusta ang kasama sa opisina na inambush? Gayong boss pa nila sa opisina nila.

    7. Kung walang kinalaman si Jamalia Aloyodan sa pagkamatay ni Mayor Somerado Guro bakit wala siyang action walang ginawa para mahuli ang mga pumatay kay mayor Somerado Guro at asawang si Rohaifa? Siya ang kasalukuyang authority, siya ang kasalukuyang mayor, kung hindi sila ang pumatay, sana noon pa po sa simula palang nakipag tulungan na sila sa pag imbesitiga kung sino ang totoong pumatay.

    8. SA KORTE DAPAT SUMAGOT SI JAMALIA ALOYODAN AT IBANG SUSPECT, HINDI PO SA STAND OUT OR RALLY NG IBANG TAO. Kung titingnan po natin sa ginawa nilang stand out o rally, hindi po nag salita sila Mayor Jamalia Aloyodan at Si Apolo Aloyodan. Kung totoo kang walang kinalaman dapat ay ikaw mismo ang mag salita para sa sarili mo at hindi ang mga tao na binayaran mo lang para mag salita para sayo.

    9. Bakit binuto si Jamalia Aloyodan ng mga tao? Binuto siya ng mga tao dahil si Jamalia ay namigay ng malaking pera sa mga tao, sa katunayan ay nag loan sila ng malaking halaga sa ngalan ng Municipality of Lumbaca Unayan.

    10. Peaceful Election daw ang eleksyon 2022 sa Lumbaca Unayan. Kung totoo daw na sila ang gumawa ng krimen, ide sana hindi daw sila nanalo sa eleksyon. Ang totoo pong nangyari noong eleksyon ay nang harass sila ng mga botante sa mga selected barangays para lang hindi maka boto ang iba. Gumamit sila ng violence para lang manalo sa eleksyon na ito. Hindi po ito basihan ng isang totoong inosenteng tao. Hindi po lahat nakaboto ang mga tao dahil nanggulo ang ilan sa mga kapamilya ni Mayor Jamalia Aloyodan at Apolo Aloyodan sa araw ng eleksyon 2022.

    11. Sino si Mayor Sultan Somerado Guro? Siya, ang kanyang ama na si Hadji Azis Guro at ang kapatid nya na si Atty. Ismael Guro ang nagtulongan para ma create ang Municipality of Lumbaca Unayan thru (MMA) Muslim Mindanao Autonomous Act No. 106 promulgated by the Regional Legislative Assembly (RLA) on April 27, 1999 ratified thru plebiscite on November 27, 2004.

    Si Mayor Sultan Somerado Guro po ay hindi kailanman na involve sa kahit na anong illegal na gawain. Walang dahilan para gawin iyon sa kanya maliban lamang sa personal interest ng iba.

  2. Justice for Ex Mayor Somerado Guro not Aloyodan. Stop spreading fake news at kung hindi talaga kayo ang gumawa but hindi niyo harapin ang kaso but pa kailangan mag tago kayo. Accept the fact and reault. It is too late na mag rally pa kayo nailabas na ang kaso laban sa inyo kaya di niyo na ma denied
