Deputy Speaker Rufus Rodriguez on Wednesday strongly condemned the grenade attack at the ancestral residence of the Rodriguez family in Barangay Nazareth in Cagayan de Oro City.

“The PNP investigation is now ongoing,” Rodriguez told reporters. The grenade attack happened at around 1 am on Wednesday.

The House leader said the grenade did not explode. 

“The grenade was lobbed in front of my residence. There were 2 motorcycle riding persons,” he added.

The Rodriguez family, in a statement, said no one is harmed in the incident.

“Lives were put at risk in the grenade attack at the ancestral residence of the Rodriguez family in Barangay Nazareth in Cagayan de Oro City earlier today. We condemn in the strongest terms this act of violence perpetrated by unknown men,” the statement said.

“Deputy Speaker Rufus Rodriguez and [his sister] Councilor [Jocelyn] Bebot Rodriguez [of 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro] will ensure that the services offered by their respective offices are unhampered even during these trying times,” it added.

The Rodriguez family said the authorities are currently conducting the investigations, and “justice will be served against all those responsible for the crime.”
