Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City — Prior to President Rodrigo Duterte’s scheduled visit in Maasim, Sarangani, the Philippine National Police (PNP) intensified its efforts to weaken the force of 3 members of Ansar al-Khilafah Philippines (AKP) arrested.
Three members of AKP were arrested named Zaidon Nilong, Danny Yang, and Mario Suib Linggay.
Police recovered a grenade from Nilong, sachets of suspected shabu from Yang, and a .45 Caliber Pistol from Linggay.
Polomolok Municipal Police Station took the custody of the three and scheduled to file charges in court today.
Linggay claimed to be an internal asset of 6th Infantry Division while Nilong is said to be a 2nd-degree cousin of Abdul Basit Usman who is the founder of AKP Southern Mindanao.
Nilong reportedly allowed the AKP to use their old MNLF camp in Barangay Aflek, T’boli where some members of AKP from Maguindanao are hiding.
On the other hand, Regional Anti-Illegal Drug Special Operation Task Force (RAIDSOTF) searched the house of Nilong’s brother, Lapu Brgy. Capt. Abdullah Nilong, and Redzkie Dumato but nothing illegal was found. MCAG/LMC/MF
