The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) Cebu City Chapter, in a statement, condemned Ole's killing.
"We condemn the atrocities being cast against fellow lawyers and we must not allow this system of violence to persist in our midst," the IBP-Cebu said. 
"We have been nothing but cooperative with all investigations done by authorities. And we will continue to take this high route. "
Ole's husband was earlier killed in a gun attack in May shortly after the latter was released from prison.
Her death also comes after the killing of lawyer Joey Luis Wee, who was shot dead outside his office in Barangay Kasambagan, Cebu City on Nov. 23.
