BALANGA City, Bataan – Rep. Enrique “Tet” Garcia on Monday condoled with the kin of the slain commando of the Philippine National Police – Special Action Force (SAF) from Morong town while the mother of the trooper expressed grief for other mothers.“Pupuntahan natin upang personal na makiramay at tuloy makapag-ambag ng tulong sa kanyang mga kaanak,” the second district congressman said. The remains of PO3 John Llyod Sumbilla, 33 lie in state in barangay Poblacion in Morong town.
The SAF trooper from Sulat, Eastern Samar married Raechel Millado of Morong, a public school teacher, last September 2014 in civil ceremony and on December of the same year in church rites. Raechel is six months pregnant to a baby girl.
Garcia said that the provincial government of Bataan has been assisting the SAF detachment in
Morong in terms of housing and rice subsidy. He said that senate and congress will recommend changes to avoid recurrence of what happened.
Telly Sumbilla, 62 not only heavily grieved for her slain son but also for the mothers of the other SAF members of the “Fallen 44“. Kawawa ang mga inang nawalan ng anak,” she said.“Sana mabigyan sila ng hustisya, karumal-dumal ang ginawa nila sa anak ko,” the old woman said.
She described her son as “mabait at mapagbigay sa mga kapatid at kamag-anak.” Telly said she was with her son in Pangasinan last Christmas and New Year. “Enjoy na enjoy kami. Nagtataka lang ako kung bakit sobrang tuwa niya noon,” the mother said. She said that she was advising her son to leave SAF and transfer to Eastern Samar. “Ayaw niyang umalis, gusto niya sa SAF.”
John Lloyd was third of five children of Telly and deceased former chief of police of Sulat,
