Police Regional Office-Zamboanga Peninsula (PRO-9) spokesman Senior Inspector Joseph Ortega said the incident took place around 10 a.m. Wednesday at Sitio Pulo Langan in the village of Poblacion, Kalawit, Zamboanga Del Norte.

Ortega identified the victims as Noel Daarol, 30; and, Remar Cano, 30. Both were collectors of Duane Jhon Lending Corporation based in Liloy, Zamboanga Del Norte.

Ortega said that investigation showed that the victims were aboard a motorcycle and collecting loans from their clients when ambushed by three unidentified gunmen.

Investigation continues to unmask the suspects, he said.
