BARCELONA, Sorsogon—A task force to investigate on the murder of radio broadcaster and activist Teodoro "Todoy" Escanilla has been created by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of the Sorsogon police.

Sixty-three-year-old Escanilla, a resident of Barangay Tagdon, Barcelona, Sorsogon, was shot inside his home at around 11:45 p.m. on August 19.

He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital, after suffering several gunshot wounds.

Escanilla used to host a radio program called Pamana ng Lahi every Sunday on radio station DZMS.

His last topic, the police said, was the alleged summary execution of three suspected rebels at Irosin, Sorsogon in July 2015.

He was also a spokesman of group Karapatan-Bicol and a chairman of Anakpawis Sorsogon.

Yesterday, Malacanang condemned the killing of Escanilla.

"Tutugisin ang mga pinaghihinalang salarin at papanagutin," Presidential Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said in a statement.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
