Motorbike-riding killers in over 5,500 murder cases are still at-large, according to police data obtained by Rappler

Thousands of killers on motorbikes remain at-large under the Duterte administration, data from the Philippine National Police (PNP) obtained by Rappler showed.

From 2016 to 2020, the PNP recorded a total of 7,065 murders committed with motorcycles, most of which, according to PNP spokesman Brigadier General Ildebrandi Usana, were riding-in-tandem killings.

Of the number, only 1,467 are solved. Some 3,349 are still under investigation, while 2,249 were labeled as “cleared.”

This means killers in a total of 5,598 murder incidents are still roaming free.
