A map and sketches of the house as well as family photos of slain Negros Oriental Governor Roel Degamo were discovered at the home of the suspect arrested during the raid inside the compound owned by former Governor Henry Pryde Teves. according to the Philippine National Police (PNP).

In a media briefing on Tuesday, PNP spokesperson Jean Fajardo said the recovery of the items happened during the March 26 implementation of the search warrant in the house of suspect Nigel Electona, a former police patrolman dismissed from service in 2017 due to alleged involvement in illegal drugs.

The suspect was also the chief security officer of HDJ Bayawan Agriventures Corporation owned by the brother of embattled Rep. Arnolfo Teves.

He and two others were arrested during the serving of a search warrant inside his house in Barangay Villareal in Bayawan City on March 26.


"Ito po ay nagamit during the planning stage. Ito nga pong si Nigel. Kasama po siya at isa sa mga tumulong dun po sa mga gunmen during the casing and surveillance," Fajardo said.

Among those seized were six pieces of rifles of various calibers; nine pieces of pistols of various calibers; 9,615 rounds of live ammunition of different calibers; 207 pieces fired bullets of different calibers; 45 pieces of steel and plastic magazines of different calibers; and assorted accessories of the different caliber of firearms.

Fajardo said officers from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) had to use a backhoe and other heavy equipment to dig, which resulted in the recovery of the improvised explosive devices.

Also seized during the raid were P18 million in different denominations.


The recovery of the cache of firearms, ammunition, and IEDs, according to Fajardo, is another cause for an explanation on the part of Pryde Teves.

On March 4, Degamo and five others were killed while several others were injured in the attack that was pulled off while the governor was distributing aid to his constituents at his residence in Pamplona
