PROVINCIAL Capitol, Pili, Camarines Sur -- The motive is still unknown but a reported member of the provincial government Civil Security Unit (CSU) personnel, identified as Rayjan Tubana Mosa, 26, was nabbed by Majority Floor Leader Rolando Andaya’s security aids, while packing a cal. .38 revolver shortly after Andaya’s filed his certificate of candidacy (CoC) at CamSur Comelec office here, at  2:40 p.m. Tuesday.

Reportedly, Mosa, who was later identified by Capitol CSU head Jojo Mosa, a former PNP officer as among his men detailed at the capitol grounds without firearms, was nabbed by Andaya’s security head, retired policeman Chief Insp. Sammuel Alforte.

Mosa was subdued and handcuffed by Andaya’s security aid while attempting to get close to the congressman after leaving the CamSur Comelec office.

Lupi Mayor Bobby Matamorosa, who helped in apprehending the suspect, told reporters that when Mosa was searched by Andaya’s aids, a loaded cal. .38 revolver (TM: Smith and Wesson) slipped from beneath his pants. The handgun was handed to responding Pili PNP officer PO3 Renan Bongalon.

Andaya, who rushed to the Pili MPS after Mosa’s arrest, tried to talk to the suspect on who ordered him to pack a handgun at the Comelec premises.

Mosa opted to remain silent on the queries of the congressman.

Pili police investigators, who prepared for the filing of the case against Mosa, recalled that the suspect was a member of the CSU, who was allegedly with 2nd district CamSur Rep. “L-Ray” Villafuerte when the latter had an altercation with Andaya at the Pili Police Station over an order by the provincial government to dump soil fillings at the road in Sitio Caorasan, Bgy. San Agustin, in relation to the land expropriation of the Pili Airport construction in March this year.
