Aquino, Gerry Roxas and Jovito Salonga formed the leadership of the opposition to the government of President Ferdinand Marcos. Shortly after that, he was arrested in 1973 for seven years. Aquino was allowed to travel to the United States for medical treatment following a heart attack. He was killed at the Manila International Airport in 1983 upon returning from his self-imposed exile.
