City folks edgy over cult rumors

IT MAY be a mere hoax or not but city residents and public officials are asking police authorities to look into reports of a cult group that murders and slices off girls’ breasts and is now prowling in Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental.

As early as last month, Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro received six text messages stating how a cult group is going around the city killing helpless females and slicing their breasts off as token.These text messages, though written differently, sent out a dire warning for young girls and any woman not to go out on her own at night as “it is no longer safe.”

Then there is one text message that reads: “Naa usab babae nga gibiktima ug gi-slike usab iyang totoy didto sa Jasaan, Misamis Oriental pero hangtud karon walay report sa mga polis. (There is also a woman who was victimized and her breasts were sliced off by this cult group also operating in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental and until now there is no police report on it).”Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro received another text message Friday and this time another woman was victimized.

“Naay patay sa Carmen ang kulto kagabii. Seven months pregnant pa gyud. Taga-Bulua ang babae. Sa Carmen siya gipatay. Gikuhaan gihapon ug breasts (The cult group killed another woman who was seven months pregnant residing in Barangay Bulua this city. Her breasts were also sliced off.),” the text message reads.

“Ayaw kumpyansa lakaw-lawka ug gabii kay delikado na kaayo. Kamulo pa ni ginapangita sa mga polis. (Do not go out on your own at night it is very dangerous. Do not take anything for granted as this is still being checked by the police),” the message further said.The text message again contained a warning that each should be extra careful in “looking out for our loved ones” with this cult group at large.

“It is no longer safe. Refrain from going out late at night. If you must, go out in groups it is better to be safe than sorry,” the text message reads.But Cagayan de Oro City Police Director Aurelio Trampe told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro Friday that his men at the Carmen Police Precinct did not receive any report of a woman being murdered with breasts sliced off.
