According to a report by Sunstar CDO, a hitman highly suspected in the assassination of university president Dr. Ricardo Rotoras was arrested last month, January 12, in Makati City, Metro Manila.

The hitman was identified as Johnreal Abel Gumanay, 33 years old and a native of Zamboanga Del Sur. He is also known by many aliases such as “JanJan,” “JunJun,” “Alejandro Ceniza,” and “Jun Putot.”

Gumanay was arrested by a warrant of arrest issued by Regional Trial Court Branch 15 in Ozamiz City, for killing former Ozamiz City Vice Mayor Rolando Romero in 2016. Police reports also stated that he is an alleged hitman of Ozamis City Councilor Ricardo “Ardot” Parohinog.

Furthermore, records from the City Prosecutor’s Office showed that Rotoras’ wife, Zarah Lynn Rotoras filed a murder charge against Gumanay last February 2, 2018. In addition to all these details, a trusted source also informed Sunstar Cagayan de Oro that during the tactical interrogation, Gumanay admitted to the police that he killed a person that “he did not know” in Cagayan de Oro last December.
