38-year-old man in Cagayan stabbed to death by fellow farmer

Updated: Nov 28, 2022


Abulug, Cagayan – A 38-year-old man was stabbed to death in Abulug, Cagayan, even sustaining a cut in his throat from his murderer, authorities reported.


The victim, Martin Mappala, married, a resident of Sto. Tomas, Abulug, came from a drinking session and was supposed to be brought home by his fellow farmer, Edgar Ignacio, the night of Wednesday, November 2.


While on their way, particularly at the boundary of Barangay Dana-ili and Sto. Tomas, the victim playfully grabbed the handlebar from the suspect, causing the ‘kulong-kulong’ they were riding to go straight into a cornfield.


The incident enraged Ignacio, who was then under the influence of liquor, and stabbed Mappala in his chest and his armpit- even cutting his neck twice using a 9-inch kitchen knife.


Police report said that when they arrived at the crime scene, Mappala was already lifeless.


They were accompanied by the suspect to the crime scene after he voluntarily surrendered to a Barangay Kagawad bringing with him the knife used in the crime.


The suspect is now facing murder charges.
