CLARK FREEPORT – A 48-year-old businessman from Pampanga has offered a P3 million cash reward for any information that could lead to the identities of people behind an attempted assassination plot against him last February 29.
In a press conference last Saturday, Jeffrey Dizon – eldest son in a family corporation connected with several real estate projects in Pampanga – appealed to the public to give any information leading to the arrest of the gunman, accomplices and the masterminds behind the attempt to take his life.
Dizon narrated that at around 6:30 pm that day, he was outside his house talking over the phone when he heard a gunfire coming from the residence of his siblings and mother. Dizon’s residence is located at St. Catherine Compound, Barangay Pandan, Angeles City.
Upon checking, he found four slugs hitting the concrete wall of his house.
The bullets were from a 5.56 rifle, according to a police report.
“It has been determined by the police that the shots came from across the street near a gated subdivision.I cannot believe that any of my siblings are involved in any plot to have me exterminated,” Dizon said.
He said “the only possible dispute he knew concerns a business matter which involved the family corporation.”
“I am appealing to the general public particularly to my fellow Kapampangans to please pray for me and my family because our lives are in danger,” he said while in tears.
Probers said the shot was made from an elevated area, possibly from a tall structure across Dizon’s house.
