La Union 2nd District Representative Sandra Eriguel turned emotional during a privilege speech on May 28 as she talked about her husband’s murder.
Eriguel’s late husband, former La Union politiko Eufranio “Franny” Eriguel was shot by unidentified men right on the eve of the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
She said she was in the car when her husband was gunned down while giving a speech during a miting de avance.
“But as everyone was running away from the scene, I expected Franny to stand up, but he did not. I then got out of the car to check on him and I saw a scene that I never thought I would see: I saw my husband lying on the pavement, bloodied and lifeless. They killed Franny,” she said.
Eriguel called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to “unmask the perpetrators, including the mastermind” of her husband’s killing.
“As long as they remain unidentified, my life and the life of my children will always be at risk,” she said.
