IBP President Condemns Strafing of Ignacio’s House

LAOAG CITY – IBP local chapter President Richard Tumaneng strongly condemned the strafing of the house of fellow lawyer Ferdinand Ignacio last Tuesday (Dec. 22) in Brgy. Salbang, Paoay Ilocos Norte. Tumaneng said that the incident was an attack not only to Ignacio but to the whole members of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines. Tumaneng said the shooting incident might be the handiwork of hired killers. Two motorcycle-riding men sprayed Ignacio’s bungalow with bullets at dawn of Dec. 22, police said. Nobody was hurt in the strafing, the second time to occur in Ignacio’s residence. Ignacio was a former IBP local chapter president. (edg)
