Sitti Gilda Mahinay Sapie and her husband Muhaimin Mphammad Sapie were killed by sniper fire minutes apart outside their home in Solariega Subdivision in Barangay Talomo. (The Durian Post initially reported that the husband is also a lawyer).

The Sapies broadcast their 3PM to 5PM program, Justice Redeemer, in a studio in an office outside of their house in the gated subdivision. The program is also live-streamed on Facebook.
