Presence of 6 Abu Sayyaf members monitored in Cebu

SIX members of Abu Sayyaf group reportedly arrived in Cebu last Friday, October 21, according to an official of the Regional Intelligence Division (RID) of Police Regional Office-Central Visayas.

Superintendent Julian Entoma, RID-Central Visayas chief, said the bandits led by sub-commander Alhabsi Misaya came in the province to reportedly kidnap "prominent" persons, but they left the province last Sunday, October 23.

The police official, however, said they are still monitoring if there are still members of the group in Cebu and other parts of the region.

The group might also target commercial establishments like malls and public markets, he said.

Entoma told reporters they are coordinating with the Muslim communities, managements of malls, pension houses, lodges, and beach resorts to tighten their security. (SunStar Cebu)
