Oct. 14, 2011: shot dead by two unidentified motorcycle-riding suspects along the national highway in Sitio Mamprasanon, Barangay Banahaw, Lianga, Surigao del Sur.

Bayanihan Council of Datus (BACODA) Caraga Region, headed by Gallego, had also filed complaint against several concerned government officials of the NCIP, Bureau of Mines and Geo-Sciences (MGB) and DENR on why small-scale mining and large-scale mining permits were issued to some protected areas in the region that also violated rampantly indigenous people’s rights.
