KIDAPAWAN CITY (MindaNews)–North Cotabato’s most wanted fugitive and suspected gun-for-hire was killed in Car-men town around 10 p.m. Wednesday, a village offi-cial said.
Killed was Nasser Omar, also known as Commander Derby, who was believed behind the killing in 2010 of Pol Dulay, vice-mayor of Kabacan, North Cotabato.
Nestor Salama, chair of Barangay Batongkaya in Montawal, Maguin-danao confirmed Omar’s death in an interview Thursday with radio station DXND.
Salama said that Nasser, who carried a P2.5-million reward money on his head, was killed in Barangay Nasapian, Carmen by his close-in bodyguard whom he refused to name for his “security”.
In 2010, the municipal government of Kabacan offered a P1.5-million re-ward for his arrest or death after witnesses tagged him as Dulay’s killer.
In May 2017, another P1-million reward was dangled for his capture after he led the escape of at least 157 inmates from the North Cotabato District Jail (NCDJ) on January 4, 2017.
Omar was allegedly hired to take Melvin Ca-sangyao out of NCDJ. Malu Cadelina Manar/MindaNews
