MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The supposed ambush attempt on 39-year old Bukidnon radio commentator Randy T. Makiputin in Valencia City last Friday, November 26, has turned out to be false.

New reports quote police authorities in Valencia City as saying they are now uncertain whether an attempt on the life of Makiputin was indeed made as reported by Makiputin to authorities.

Four individuals, two of whom are minors aged 13 and 16 years old, have surfaced claiming Makiputin’s head wound was sustained when Makiputin crashed his motorcycle after hitting one of them. Both are residents of Maramag town, Bukidnon and have executed sworn statements before police authorities accusing Makiputin of pointing a gun at them after the crash. Makiputin was also said to be intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Makiputin had reported that he was ambushed by unidentified persons onboard XRM motorcycles on Nov. 26, at around 7:00 PM in Valencia City.

Makiputin, a resident of Dayo Subdivision in Valencia City, is with Radyo Abante, a radio station in Maramag town, Bukidnon.

Based on initial police reports and on interviews with Makiputin in a hospital in Valencia City, Makiputin said he sustained a lone gunshot wound on the back of his head.

Makiputin has checked himself out of the hospital and can no longer be reached for comment as of Sunday, November 28. (Rowena Paraan/JB Deveza)
