Last July 21, AFP Lt. Jay Alambra, Lt. Aries Apduhan and Major Domingo, reported to their headquarters that they had an encounter with the NPA in Duyaas, Upper Uma, Lubuagan, Kalinga. They claimed that the encounter resulted in the death of an NPA guerrilla and the recovery of one .30 cal carbine and a magnum cal .22 revolver. They also announced that they discovered the headquarters of the NPA-Kalinga command in the mountainous areas of Upper Uma.

The report made by these fascist officers is a brazen lie. The truth is that they murdered Rocky Aboli, married, and a resident and barangay kagawad of Upper Uma. Aboli was shot to death by troops led by Lt. Jay Alambra, Lt. Aries Apduhan and Major Domingo in Mount Bulos, Upper Uma, Lubuagan at 4 o'clock in the afternoon of July 20.
