Mayor Cuan of Libungan, Cotabato, driver shot dead


Four unidentified armed men shot dead Monday, January 11, the mayor of Libungan in Cotabato and his driver in a cockpit arena in the said municipality.

Police said the suspects on board a vehicle tailed Mayor Christopher “Amping” Cuan, 46, along with his driver Edwin Ihao, 36, and shot them when they arrived at his cockpit arena, which was still under construction.

In January 2019, Cuan, who was then inside the town hall, survived an assassination attempt.

The slain mayor was included in the list of alleged “narco-politicians” of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Authorities have been investigating the latest incident.
