The alleged successor of extradited drug lord Daniel “El Loco” Barrera was assassinated in Colombia’s capital Bogota Monday.
Antonio Angulo Salazar, alias “El Pollo,” was shot by assassins as he was leaving a shop in the west of the capital. The alleged drug lord was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries.
El Pollo’s bodyguard was injured in the assassination that was carried by at least two men on motorcycles.
According to weekly Semana, the assassination followed the sexual assault of three daughters of a killed rival drug trafficker, “Mojarro,” last week in the central Colombian city of Villavicencio.
The weekly said it was possible El Pollo was behind the attack on his dead rivals’ daughters and subsequently became the victim of a plot to avenge the triple sex crime.
Both El Pollo and Mojarro were top assassins of “El Loco” Barrera, who was considered Colombia’s “last great capo” until his 2012 in Venezuela and subsequent extradition to the United States.
