BAGUIO CITY – Hundreds of residents lined the streets of Tabuk, Kalinga on Friday, July 3, as they welcomed home the town’s fallen son Major Marvin Indammog, whose remains were escorted by an Army convoy.

Indammog was one of the four Army intelligence operatives, who were tracking two Abu Sayyaf bombers when they were allegedly shot dead by Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel in Jolo, Sulu on June 29. 

The other slain intelligence officers were  Capt. Irwin Managuelod, Sgt.  Jaime M.  Velasco,  and Cpl.  Abdal Asula.  The police later claimed that the slain soldiers engaged them in a shootout. 

Indammog is a member of Philippine Military Academy (PMA)  “Mandala” Class of 2006.

The body of Inlammog was first brought to the Libingan ng mga Bayani in Taguig City for a wake, together with the remains of Managuelod and Velasco. Asula was earlier immediately buried according to Muslim tradition.

The Scout Ranger Alumni Association (SRAA)-Kalinga Chapter called on the residents to stand along the highway from Barangay Calanan until Purok Uno, Bulanao Tabuk to show their respects to Indammog.

The coffin of the slain soldier arrived via a Huey Helicopter at around 11 a.m. at the headquarters of the 503rd Brigade Philippine Army.

SRAA-Kalina has demanded that justice be served in the death of Indammog and his fellow fallen Army soldiers.
