LCP Statement on the Killing of Former Lamitan City Mayor Rose Furigay

By LCP Secretariat
July 24, 2022 - Quezon City


The 146-strong League of Cities of the Philippines condemns in the strongest possible terms the brutal murder of former Lamitan City Mayor, Rosita U. Furigay. This cowardly act executed in broad daylight is a sobering call for vigilance and a cry for restoring peace and order.


Former Mayor Furigay, I was told, was an active member of the LCP. She served in the 2019-2022 National Executive Board as Regional Representative for BARMM and was fondly remembered for her active participation in various programs and projects of the League.


Former Mayor Furigay is a friend to many of her colleagues and was well-loved by the residents of Lamitan City. We demand swift and immediate justice. The League, for its part, is even more emboldened to continue to actively pursue efforts against criminality and lawlessness in order to keep our cities and our people safe and secure.


We express our deepest condolences to the Furigay family especially Mayor Roderick Furigay, and the people of Lamitan City. We also pray for the families of Jeneven Bandiala and Victor George Capistrano. Finally, we pray for the speedy recovery of Hanah Rose Furigay. 


Former Mayor Rose's life may have ended so abruptly, but her legacy of public service will continue to inspire her fellow civil servants.



Mayor Mike L. Rama
