Ilocos Norte Gov. Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. said he would have turned up dead like Bacarra Mayor Philip Velasco and Councilor Marcelo Andaya had he showed up at the public auditorium where the killings occurred.
Marcos was the guest of honor during the farmers’ festival on Sunday night (May 20) but he deferred going to the program when he was informed of the killing.
