A FARMER was hacked to death by his neighbor who caught him stealing a bunch of banana on Tuesday afternoon at a remote village in Las Nieves town, Agusan del Norte province, police reports said on Wednesday. The victim was identified as Placido Enali, 39, while the suspect was identified as Tirso Carmelo Rapana, 35. Both are residents of Purok-4, Sitio Subait in Las Nieves. Initial investigation showed that Rapana was alarmed by his barking dog, prompting him to inspect the area. He then reportedly found Enali in the act of cutting the banana bunch. When he approached Enali, the latter reportedly drew a bolo, prompting him to hack the latter. Village Chairman Renato Baguio surrendered the suspect to the Las Nieves Municipal Police Station.
