IT started with an altercation. Then a brawl ensued. Later, a man fell to the ground after he was shot by a lone suspect.

 

Niño Vera succumbed to gunshot wounds allegedly inflicted by suspect Jeremy Albacete, 24, inside Savannah subdivision around 11pm the other day.

 

Police said Vera and Albacete harbored grudges over a basketball game in the past.

 

Witnesses said that after the fisticuff, the suspect’s brother, Dr. Noel Jerome Albacete, arrived onboard a Toyota Revo and gave Jeremy a gun.

 

Jeremy then chased Vera and shot the victim about five times. The victim was hit in the back and fell to the ground.

 

Concerned residents rushed Vera to the nearest hospital but died on arrival.

 

Jeremy surrendered to the Oton police in the follow up operation while his brother-doctor was confined in a hospital.

 

Dr. Albacete, according to Oton police investigators, might be included in the case for giving the gun to the suspect.

THE sole road project of Senate President Manuel Villar in Iloilo leads right to his own subdivision straddling the towns of Pavia and Oton.

According to documents from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Department of Budget and Management, Villar’s project is an asphalt overlay of the 586.6-linear meter portion of the national highway at Brgy. Jibao-an, Pavia.

“It was a road widening which includes the concreting of shoulder and sidewalk with gutter. A cross-drain was also established to avoid erosion of the road,” said DPWH regional director Rolando Asis.

Asis said road rehabilitation project paved the highway leading to the entrance of Savannah Subdivision which is owned by Villar.

Savannah, nine kilometers from Iloilo City, is an almost 300-hectare posh village established sometime in 2000.

Based on Special Allotment Release Order No. ROVI-2004-249, the road rehabilitation has a funding of P4 million.

The International Builders Corporation won the project contract for P3,884,040.47. The rehabilitation includes the asphalt overlay of 586.6 linear meters of road, concrete shoulders and sidewalk with curb and gutter.

DBM assistant regional director Alfonso Bedonia said the funds for the project were included in the 2003 General Appropriations Act.

“It was taken from the maintenance and other operating expenses under capital outlay of the DPWH. The DPWH has the discretion on how the allocation shall be used. Legislators could make a request to fund a certain project,” Bedonia said.

The original asphalt road was rehabilitated in 2004 after it was severely damaged by heavy trucks loaded with tons of aggregates passing through the area.
