Gunman in Abra Mayor’s slay falls

BANGUED, Abra — A 12–year case has finally drawn to a close.

Police arrested, Ruben Barcena Bobila, suspected killer of former Tineg mayor Clarence Benwaren at his home in Barangay Lenneng, Baay-Licuan town.

Abra police director Virgilio Laya said Bobila is tagged as the fourth most wanted person in the Cordillera after the death of Benwaren in October 2002.

“Hindi sa lahat ng panahon ay makakapag tago sila [those wanted for crimes], mabibigyan at mabibigyan natin ng hustisya ang mga tao,” Laya said.

Laya said the arrest of Bobila is the result of a long operation since the time of former provincial director Bemjamin Lusad who tried but failed to arrest the suspect twice.

“Talagang mahirap siyang hulihin,” he added.

Laya said Bobila is elusive as he is protected by family and friends in the area. The arrest made on June 11, Wednesday, was the third attempt by operatives to capture the suspect.

Laya said Abra police showed patience and keen observation skills when they searched the home of Bobila. His wife has again denied his presence in the area and as the police team was about to pullout from the search, one cop noticed movement in the top area of the house.

The police team then proceeded to search the house anew, revealing Bobila, who was hiding near the roof.

“Tiyaga ito ng ating kapulisan,” Laya said.

The 35-year-old chief executive was murdered right inside the church during a wedding ceremony in Calamba town in Laguna twelve years ago, where he stood as principal sponsor.

Benwaren’s killer came from behind while he was signing the marriage contract inside the church and shot him with a caliber .45 automatic in the right temple.

Benwaren was pronounced dead on arrival at the San Pablo Community Hospital in San Pablo City.

Judge Antonio Eugenio Jr. of the RTC Branch 34, Calamba City issued his warrant of arrest for murder recommending no chance to post bail.

It was not known, however, from the Abra police who ordered Bobila to kill Benwaren neither was Bobila a member of a private armed group.

“Hanggang ngayon ay tikom ang bibig niya, wala siyang sinasabi or inaamin,” Laya said.

Laya said to this day there is no known mastermind for the killing of Benwaren until Bobila confesses to everything, making the 12-year case, still a mystery.

Bobila is now detained in Abra.

    • Bro, chain of command, without the leadership and planning of Col. V. Laya that would be next to impossible. Appreciate what he have done to encourage him more. Tapno agaramid ti ummo saan ket nga tay adda naaramidan na, babalawem pay laeng. Sanabagan ket dayta nga kapanunutam. No sika kuma ni Col. Laya ta ibagami ti kasta, mayat ka Bro?

  5. Do something or arrest someone too so that you can build up your name instead of just criticizing others good accomplishment. The public want to hear a job-well-done, what’s wrong with that?

  9. You reap what you saw-criminals n righteous alike.

    Those who exult themselves will be humbled, and he humbles himself will be exulted- the Scripture

    Sometimes advice is not always needed, what we need is Ear to Listen, Eyes to see, Heart and Mind to Understand.
    Your points mr ALFREDOVALERA ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, it’s full of wisdom. More power.

  16. Reading your argument on issue of honor or is it pride, I’m really impressed with THE patience, tact, humility and wisdom of sir ALFREDOVALERA. Sad to note, most of others reactions are negative, meaning they refuse to accept the truth. Only truth will set you free. No man is an island. Self exaltation is a kind of dreaded pride. Learn from experience because EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER. What really need is sincere heart n mind to understand. Look what The Lord said …you who are younger, be subject to the elders, clothe yourselves, all of you, humility toward one another for ” God opposes the proud but gave grace to the humble “. 1 Peter 5:5
