Fae Macahilig, the niece of Corporal Winston Ragos was interviewed by Idol Raffy on Raffy Tulfo in Action.
She gave Idol a lot of details regarding the shooting incident which took the life of her uncle.
She gave details from the time that Ragos was there trying to ask money from their relative to buy cigarettes, up to the time that he was shot by Police Master Sergeant Florendo.
"Wala naman po sir eh, wala po talagang ginagawa yung tito k, bale nakatayo lang po talaga siya. Manghihingi po sana sa kamag-anak namin ng pambili ng sigarilyo po," Fae recounted.
"Tapos po, ganun po talaga kasi yung tito ko, naglalakad-lakad po, kahit saan po siya."
"Tapos po, may naki-CR daw po na isang pulis, dito po sa tindahan, tapos feeling po niya siguro sinusundan siya ng tito ko, pero palakad-lakat lang naman po talaga."
"Tapos maya-maya po, nagsumbong po yata siya dun kay Sir Florendo..."
"Nung bibili nga po sila ng sigarilyo po ng kamag-anak namin, tapos po, malayo pa po, nakatutok na yung baril ni Sir Florendo po sa tito ko po. Patawid pa lang po siya sa kalsada, meron pong umaawat po na 'wag pong barilin na kamag-anak din po namin. Kasi nga po wala naman pong ginagawang masama."
Idol Raffy asked her if there was a time that he hurt somebody, or if he had any record in the barangay.
"Hindi po nananakit yung Tito ko Sir," responded Fae. She also said that people in their barangay knew his condition, except for the policemen, but stated that people there were shouting and telling the policemen about Ragos' history.
"Hindi po nila alam pero po nung nakatutok na po yung baril, marami pong tao yung sumisigaw ng ganun. Pero ayaw po nilang pakinggan at paniwalaan."
"Tinawag po nila ako para yakapin ang tito ko para paamuhin. Dun lang po ako dumating, hanggang po sa nabaril po siya, andun ako."
She also gave details on the contents of the sling bag of Ragos, which the police took, as per a previous KAMI report.
"Meron po yung mineral water, tapos po mga gamot niya po, tapos po yung wallet niya na may laman na ATM, pero wala pong kapera-pera po yun sir. Tapos yung quarantine pass po niya."
"Wala pong baril yung Tito ko."
Idol Raffy then asked what transpired after Ragos was shot.
"Ayaw po nila kaming palapitin para buhatin agad yung Tito ko."
At this juncture, Fae began crying.
"Inantay pa po nila yung ilang minuto. Andami na pong dugo yung nawala Sir, bago po nila binuhat yung Tito ko."
"Tapos yung mga kamag-anak pa po namin yung bumuhat, hindi po yung mga pulis Sir."
"May heartbeat pa po siya Sir. Nung nakahiga po siya diyan gusto pa nga po niyang tumayo eh. Pero ayaw po nila kaming palapitin. Wala pong nag-first aid agad sir."
"Sa binti po sir at sa likod. Nakatalikod na po siya tapos binaril pa ulit eh."
