Social media pays tribute to slain “heroic” ADMU security guard Jeneven Bandiala

Twitter praised Bandiala’s heroic act of going toward the gunman instead of running away

Filipinos have paid tribute to security guard Jeneven Bandiala who was one of the casualties during the shooting incident at Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU).

According to reports, Bandiala tried to prevent the gunman from firing his gun but died doing it. The other casualties include former Lamitan Mayor Rosita Furigay and her gay aide Victor Capistrano.

Twitter praised Bandiala’s heroic act of going toward the gunman instead of running away.

To the people’s eyes, Bandiala was more than a security guard when he died.

Netizens refuse to let the gunman be known to the public more than Bandiala.

The graduating batch of Ateneo Law School 2022 is doing a fundraiser for Bandiala’s family.

A Jesuit priest a few meters from where the shooting took place said that Bandiala prevented the perpetrator, Lamitan native Dr. Chao Tiao Yumol, from entering the campus.

“For 20 mins, they remembered how SG Bandiala was ‘kaibigan, kumpare, at kakwentuhan’ and most heartbreaking was ‘kilala ko anak niya’ and ‘napatay isa sa amin…” said the priest who got the information from Bandiala’s co-workers.

“We went back to Loyola House of Studies after thanking these two security guards and many others like them for keeping our home and our beloved Ateneo safe through all these years,” he added.

Bandiala’s sister, Mary Jane, said she talked to her brother two days before the attack about their mother’s need for medicine.

“We talked about mom’s medicines, that was the last time. My mom is here in Manila. We were shocked by what happened,” Mary Jane said in Filipino.

“He’s so kind. He helps his siblings,” she added.

Bandiala’s younger brother Raymon, who also does security, said he would advise him on how to do their job.

“He always advises me that, when it came to work, to have more patience to avoid trouble. Don’t be hot-headed,” said Raymond.

“I hope your conscience bothers you after what you did to my brother. He has no fault. He was just doing his job,” said Raymond, referring to the suspect.
