Ricardo Mayumi, a 52-year-old member of the Ifugao Peasant movement (IPM), died from multiple gunshot wounds inside his house in Ambabag village in Kiangan town at 8:10 p.m. last March 2. His cousins and a neighbor rushed to his house once they heard four gunshots that night.

Witnesses stated one of the suspects wore a black jacket and a bonnet while the other was wearing a brown jacket and a helmet. Forensic investigators discovered three empty shells fired from a caliber .45-pistol on the crime scene.

The IPM, in a announcement, condemned the homicide of Mayumi, who had lobbied against the Quad River mini hydro projects in Tinoc town in Ifugao. The group said Mayumi have been receiving death threats.

Mayumi was an associate of activist William Bugatti, who was gunned down after attending a courtroom hearing on March 25, 2014.
