Balingoan vice mayoralty candidate RICHARD GEPTE, tagged in the murder of Dr. Raul Winston Andutan in December last year, has surrendered to police. In a press release, acting Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (COCPO) City Director PCol. Aaron Mandia said the 51-year old Gepte was assisted by his counsel Atty. Silvan Sabio during his voluntary surrender at Carmelite Monastery in Camaman-an at around 12:40pm, yesterday, January 23, 2022.

It can be recalled that Gepte was a subject of a manhunt by police with a standing warrant of arrest issued by Judge Gil Bollozos for the murder of Dr. Andutan. The suspect was served his warrant upon his surrender. No bail bond was recommended. Sources state there was a land dispute issue over a beach resort owned by Dr. Andutan’s family in the suspect’s hometown. With his surrender, only Rene Turtosa, who allegedly contacted the hired guns remains at large.
