Grab Philippines said on Saturday, October 28, that one of their partner drivers was killed by unidentified suspects who also took the driver's car.

The driver was Gerardo Amolato Maquidato Jr who was shot and killed evening of Thursday, October 26, by unidentified suspects who booked and rode as regular passengers.

In a statement, Grab Philippines cited an initial police report which said that a witness heard gunshots 7:50 pm on Thursday and saw the lifeless Maquidato pushed out of his silver Toyota Innova along Bonanza Street in Pasay City.

Rappler asked if Grab has details of Maquidato's last passenger, as passenger information is stored into the transport app.

Grab Spokesperson Fiona Nicolas said they have provided the Philippine National Police (PNP) records from their system.

"Grab provided and will provide any information PNP requires to ensure that justice will be served," Nicolas said.

Grab added that they have recorded 6 cases of carnapping incidents involving their partner-drivers. The suspects all booked and rode like regular passengers.

Maquidato was one of Grab Philippines' driver awardees, recognized for giving a courtesy ride to a sick passenger.

A Facebook post went viral in August 2016 commending Maquidato for picking up a diabetes patient on her way to pick up bags of blood for her dialysis. Maquidato did not charge his passenger for fare out of kindness.

Grab Philippines said Prima Ornum, the diabetes patient, has passed away but her relatives had the chance to thank Maquidato in person during his awarding.

"Our prayers and sympathies go out to Mr Maquidato’s family. He was a good father to his 4 children, a good friend to many of his fellow drivers, and a good driver who was always willing to outserve his passengers. He will be missed," Grab Philippines said.

"Meanwhile, Grab has taken steps (toward) working on a tech solution that would decrease, if not completely hamper, the chances of carnapping incidents involving Transport Network Vehicle Services (TNVS) – that have apparently been the latest target of lawless elements," Grab Philippines added. – Rappler.com

  1. What others are doing can only make you cry. I feel like if the people who does these things are not druggies they could be psychopaths and people should adress that mental health is very important talaga.Nakakaiyak. To think na may pamilyang naghihintay sa isang taong marangal magtrabaho.

    1. May karma sa taong pumatay as kanya. Buhay pa nakasanla na kay Satanas ang kaluluwa. Hustisya sana ay makamtan na. Nagtatrabaho ng marangal. Nakakalungkot naman ito. Wala ng proteksyon ang mga tao sa Pilipinas. Kanya kanya na lang

    2. Lungkot te :-( bakit may gumagawa ng ganito. Hindi na lang magtrabaho ng mahusay.

    3. Please dont turn this into a political discussion especially when you're misrepresenting the facts, 12:39. Murder rates are up. And thats actually beside the point kasi depravity ng society pinaguusapan, hindi ang administrasyon. Masyado kang defensive. Napaghahalata

  8. That's the problem when anyone, just anyone, can use any sim and register for an account. sa sobrang dali kumuha ng bagong sim at magregister on any name, di malabong mangyari talaga to. too bad for these people na nagtratrabaho nang marangal. they should also be protected. i hope they tighten the security on making accounts para sure din ang drivers sa safety nila.

    1. Nope. Mahigpit na sila ngayon. I tried registering my 2nd number and I can't register. Suspended daw. So natatrack ata nila pag same phone ka nagregister

    2. 12:32 korek ka dyan. dapat talaga mag higpit na din sa pag benta ng sim katulad sa ibang bansa. maiiwasan ang mga ganitong pangyayari kung medyo mahigpit ang bansa nating sa mga ganyan. sa mga bangketa, kalat na kalat ang sim cards tsk tsk.

      Delete
  9. as for now, ang pinaka madaling solution is taasan ang presyo ng sim cards. kesa sa 15 pesos lang. i know hindi pa rin solution un but better than a 15 pesos sim card na kahit minu-minuto eh pwede ka magpalit ng number. and sana pag bibili ng sim card, they ask for identification and ilagay sa records ng telco company. para hindi maabuso yung ganito. so sad this has to happen. and i did see it coming lalo na nung may nabasa ako na nag grabe share tapos may sinakay sila na ibang tao then yung totoong pasahero hindi pala sya yung sumakay dun.

    1. Capitalist networks cares about their sales and coverage noon palang. Pataasan lagi ng subscribers so malabo na mangyari yang registered ka sa telco

  12. Dapat ang pagkuha ng sim sa pinAs gawin kagaya dito aa dubai. Kailangan magpresent ng valid ID. Para mabawasan pati mga kawatan using mobile phones. RIP manong. May your family find comfort during this very sad time

  13. Grabe. Nakakalungkot naman ang balitang ito. I’m a regular Grab passenger for three years na. Twice pa lang ako nagkaproblema sa Grab drivers. Polite and courteous yung mga nasasakyan kong Grab car drivers. May times pa na babae yung Grab driver. Nakakalungkot isipin na namatay sya para lang sa sasakyan at pera. Naghahanap buhay sya bilang isang Grab driver, kumikita sa marangal at maayos na paraan. Samantalang itong mga kriminal na ito, easy money! Carnapping at papatay, may pera na sila! Nakakagalit! Nakakaiyak sa galit at inis. Magtrabaho kayo! Magbanat ng buto! Magpuyat at magpagod kayo sa trabahong moral at legal. Pare-pareho lang tayo sa mundong ito na kailangan ng pera para mabuhay, may panggastos araw-araw para sa sarili at para sa pamilya. Kaya magtrabaho kayo ng hindi makakapanakit, hindi manglalamang ng kapwa at hindi papatay! Sana mahuli at maparusahan yang (mga)pumatay sa Grab driver na yan. My condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Maquidato Jr.

  15. Sabi ng mama ko after ko ikwento to sa kanya “Lahat ng trabaho talaga may risks. Hindi mo kasi talaga alam ang kayang gawin ng ibang tao.”

  16. Naway makamit nya ang hustisya. Diyos na ang bahala sa masasamang loob na gumawa nito sa kanya. Ingat mga kagrab!

  17. Hirap maunawaan paano at bakit may mga taong kayang pumatay ng kapwa.. para sa ano? Sa kotse?! Pera?? Nakakagalit na may mga buhay na nasasayang nang dahil lang sa mga materyal na bagay :( Ang pera po ay mauubos din, hindi niyo yan madadala sa hukay. I pray na mahuli ang mga gumawa nito at mabigyan ng hustisya ang pagkamatay niya. Rest in peace.
