Bohol Broadcast Journalist’s House Targeted for Arson

Suspected arsonists attempted to put to torch the residence of radio commentator Kagawad Roberto “Batchoy” Alba early dawn yesterday in outskirt barangay San Isidro, this city.

Alba who is a barangay kagawad in Poblacion 2 anchors the top-rated “Pulso” radio program over dyRD.

PO3 Edwin Torres, Jr of the city PNP found the left-front fender of his Toyota Avanza burned as well as a portion of the bamboo fence near the car. A water hose and rags near the car also got burned.

SFO2 Cirilo Gamba also arrived at the scene to conduct separate probe on the incident.

Alba said it was his house help who called his attention past 6 o’clock yesterday morning regarding the damaged fence as well as the burnt portion of his red Avanza.

He recalled hearing the barking of his dogs at around 3 a.m. yesterday.

“It was pure intimidation and harassment that the suspects did to me,” the radio commentator said while asserting that the incident will not stop him from crusading against bad governance.  – Bohol Chronicle
