TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan , Philippines — An overseas Filipino worker died in a knife attack in Lal-lo town on Monday.

Police said Robert Ubarre died while being treated at the Matilde Olivas District Hospital in Calamaniugan town.

The brother of the fatality, Rolly, 45, who tried to intervene, was wounded and brought to the Cagayan Valley Medical Center in this city.

Initial investigation showed that the Ubarre brothers were walking when Milagrino Dupaya attacked them.

Chief M/Sgt. Gilbert Columna said Dupaya was reportedly angered by Robert’s criticisms on social media against his wife, chairwoman of Barangay Alaguia, over the distribution of cash assistance under the government’s social amelioration program.
