A former FARC guerrilla has been murdered in a rural area of ​​the Meta department in central Colombia in the context of the wave of violence from which the country is suffering.

The victim is Fredy Fajardo, 32, a former fighter on the 40th front of the FARC who, according to Blu Radio, had completed his reintegration process in the Mariana Páez camp.

“Apparently he was killed by a group (armed men) who came to his house – they say they came in uniform – the motives are still unknown,” said the mayor of the Uribe parish where the events took place.
