Iloilo publisher-editor wounded in attack

Lemuel Fernandez, publisher-editor of the Iloilo-based Western Visayas
Daily Guardian, suffered a head injury after an unknown assailant hit him on
the head with a hard object around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Francis Allan Angelo, the newspaper’s managing editor, said he and
Fernandez had just finished editing Thursday’s issue of the newspaper and
were about to board their vehicles when the assailant struck Fernandez in
front of their office in Molo District in Iloilo City.

Angelo said he rushed to Fernandez after he heard him cry out for help and
saw him holding the back of his neck, already bloodied. He then brought his
superior to the Iloilo St. Paul’s Hospital for treatment.

Fernandez told Angelo that his assailant who immediately fled was in short
pants and wearing a white shirt.

Aside from being the publisher-editor, Fernandez also hosts the newspaper’s
weekly radio program “The Guardia On Air.”
