ZAMBOANGA City Police officer-in-charge Edwin de Ocampo has formed a task group to handle the investigation over the disappearance of a preacher in Zamboanga City.
De Ocampo on Saturday said he designated his deputy for administration, Superintendent Diomarie Albarico to head Task Group Baser.
De Ocampo said the task group has been ordered to conduct deep investigation over the disappearance of Ustadz Baser Mursalon, a resident of Labuan village, 36 kilometers west of Zamboanga City.
Initial investigation showed that Mursalon, 38, was driving his motorcycle on the way to the city proper when a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) with unidentified people on board bumped him from behind around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday in Sitio Malandi, Patalon village, 31 kilometers west of Zamboanga City.
The SUV riders disembarked when Mursalon crashed on the pavement and open fire, De Ocampo said.
Mursalon disappeared and remained missing since then, he said.
The SUV, with bloodstains, was later found abandoned with flat right front tire in the village of Sinubong, 26 kilometers west of this city, he said.
De Ocampo said there is no clear motive yet concerning Musalon’s disappearance.
The task group has been ordered to explore all possible motives in the conduct of the investigation, De Ocampo said. (Bong Garcia/Sunnex)
