He was shot dead around 2pm this afternoon inside a house that has become his sanctuary for months now. He is a human rights defender at-risk. Initial report by Jonah Cossma Jumagbas, Alternate Coordinator of RMP-NMR, who is in the site now with the quick reaction team composed of human rights organizations revealed that 8 bullets peppered Paborada's body.

Details to follow.
