From the book “Supremo: the Story of Andres Bonifacio” by Sylvia Mendez Ventura:

“A soldier under Lazaro Makapagal revealed to Bonifacio’s boyhood friend and fellow Katipunero, Guillermo Masangkay, that the Supremo was hacked to death with bolos and bayonets. A farmer said he saw five men hacking a man in a hammock.”

On May 10, 1897, Emilio Aguinaldo’s men murdered the founder of the Katipunan. Patriot Apolinario Mabini described the assassination of Bonifacio as “the first triumph of personal ambition over true patriotism…”
