It was so late at night, so along the way Bitek made signs on trees to mark the way. They dug the grave and buried Mananog. The next morning the national army came back and carried the whole village to the military camp. Only children were not taken. The national army wanted villagers to tell them where the corps of Manyanog was buried because they were sure that last night they killed him. They wanted his body to prove to villagers that maquisards were deceiving them and that there is no such thing as mystical protection against gun’s shot. However fearing to be killed by maquisards, villagers claimed not to know where Manyanog was buried. Then the army general said to villagers: ‘’as you are afraid to die in the hands of maquisards, you will die in our hands’’. The army started beating and torturing villagers, some people died others lose their eyes and other became cripple. The army general promised to kill every body if no one tells him where Manyanog was buried.
