Iligan radioman attacked inside booth

By Florante S. Solmerin | Mar. 19, 2013 at 02:12pm
The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) Tuesday said two men and a woman attacked a radio commentator while anchoring a block-time program paid for by the provincial government in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte.

“Lino dela Cruz reported to colleagues in the media that the incident happened at about 12:30 p.m. yesterday, March 18, while he was on air hosting the radio block-time program Serbisyo sa Katawhan Una sa Tanan (Service to the People First and Foremost) at station dxLS Love Radio Iligan,” the NUJP said in a statement.

In his program, Dela Cruz said he was criticizing Casan Maquiling, a former board member and former mayor of the municipality of Munai, when the suspects barged into the radio booth.

“[The] woman who identified herself as Maquiling’s elder sister accosted him inside the announcer’s booth. One of the two men grabbed him by the throat and told him to stop making negative commentaries against Maquiling,” the NUJP said, quoting Dela Cruz.

Maquiling is running for governorship of Lanao del Norte under the administration party against incumbent governor Khaled Dimaporo.

Dela Cruz, who has only just began to anchor the block-time program, said he had earlier spoken against Maquiling after the latter criticized Abdullah Dimaporo, father of the incumbent governor, for refusing to sign a covenant among local candidates calling for peaceful elections in May.

The elder Dimaporo is running for a congressional seat in the 2nd District of Lanao del Norte.

Dela Cruz disclosed he also discussed on air Maquiling's alleged support for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) when the latter was still mayor of Munai.
