COTABATO CITY (PNA) – The family of slain ophthalmologist Dr. Sajid “Jaja” Sinolinding here appealed Wednesday to President Rodrigo Duterte to look into his murder as well as the alleged corruption in a state college in North Cotabato.
Dr. Kadil Sinolinding, health secretary of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, said his slain sibling was a “collateral damage” after another brother, Professor Harris Sinolinding, survived an ambush last year after he exposed corruption at the Cotabato Foundation College of Science and Technology (CFCST) in Arakan, North Cotabato.
Dr. Jaja was shot dead by a gunman while he was attending to a patient inside his clinic at the second floor of the Cotabato Doctors’ Clinic, which is along along Sinsuat Avenue here, at around 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The gunman also shot dead Dr. Jaja’s armed security escort and fled casually amid the commotion.
Dr. Kadil said the family was dismayed and bothered to learn that the medical facility’s CCTV cameras failed to capture the events before and after the murder.
