“SOCO” looks into the details of the May 2016 prison break at the Negros Oriental Detention and Rehabilitation Center (NODRC) that put the lives of missionary Nyline Gajic and jail guard Glicerio Villegas in danger. Gajic recalls the time she was held hostage by four fleeing inmates while leaving the penitentiary. NORDC assistant provincial warden Renato Alarcon shares how fugitives James Magdasal, Maximo Aspacio, Richard Balasabas, and Rico Bandico may have brewed up the plan to escape the prison. NOPPO PRO 7 SWAT supervisor P/Insp. Efren Balili Moldez shares how authorities in the region responded to the incident, and recounts the time they gunned down three of the four fugitives in Tayasan for resisting arrest.
