PAGADIAN CITY — A Sangguniang Bayan (SB) member in Mahayag town, Zamboanga del Sur survived an ambush try Thursday afternoon, the first day of filing of the certificates of candidacy at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) office.
Mahayag police chief Sr. Insp. Harold Bruno said SB member Teomila Nobleza, a re-electionist under the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), was driving her car when an unidentified gunman wearing a helmet, shot her as she got past the Barangay Lower Salug Daku Cemetery.
Nobleza told the Inquirer she was driving at a slow pace because of the slow traffic ahead when she was attacked.
She said that after the first gunfire, she tried to side swipe the gunman but failed. So she opted to just speed off to escape.
