Man who took a bullet for Noynoy in 1987 feels “spooked’ by him

THE man who took a bullet for Liberal Party standard-bearer Sen. Benigno Aquino III at the height of the 1987 failed coup attempt is reportedly in hiding amid fears that his former boss is hunting him down, supposedly in an apparent attempt to “silence” him.

Joseph Galleta, a member of the so-called “Yellow Army,” has secured himself and his family after he was informed that Aquino is looking for him to prevent him from revealing that after saving the LP bet’s life in August 28, 1987, he was neglected and was dropped like a hot potato.

Members of the Yellow Army were former security men of Hacienda Luisita that were brought to Malacañang and operated under the command of the Presidential Escort Unit.
