The suspect in the killing of Grab driver Geraldo Amolato Maquidito on the night of October 26 has already been identified by the Pasay City police.
Pasay City police chief Senior Superintendent Dionisio Bartolome identified the suspect as Narc Tulod Delemios also known as “Miko,” a resident of Block 23 Lot 2, Don Carlos Revilla Street, Narra Extension, Barangay 148, Pasay City.
Bartolome said the suspect was identified after the live-in partner of Delemios coordinated with them and admitted that her cell phone was used to book for a Grab car.
The city police chief said further check made on Delemios found out that the suspect has a standing warrant of arrest for murder, together with another suspect, Jeric Lim, issued by Judge Rolando How, of the Parañaque City Regional Trial Court Branch 257 on February 3, 2015.
Bartolome said the court also furnished copies of the said warrant of arrest to the office of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG).
Maquidato was killed by men who posed as regular passengers along Bonanza Street in Pasay City on the night of October 26.
Initial police reports said a witness heard a gunshot at around 7:50 p.m., then saw a lifeless man pushed out of a silver Toyota Innova. The suspects fled using the victim’s vehicle.
Maquidato was also the Grab driver who was hailed as a “good Samaritan” for helping a passenger who underwent dialysis.
His good deed story went viral and he also became one of the Grab driver awardees.
A certain Divine Lactao Ornum booked a Grab car for her sister, Prima, who was on her way to Quezon City to pick up bags of blood for her dialysis. Maquidato picked her up but did not ask for payment for the trip out of kindness.
