THE Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) denied it kidnapped four men in Maguindanao last March 29.
Jayson Cababayao, Raulito Suyom Jr., Francis Wong and Rho Steven, all residents of General Santos City, were earlier reported abducted by gunmen in Sharif Aguak town.
Police said the four were going to Cotabato City for a meeting with a client when their pick-up truck was stopped by armed men.
Rumors spread a P10-million ransom was being demanded for the four, but there has been no official confirmation from authorities.
Relatives of Cababayao reportedly said somebody called them and introduced themselves as members of the BIFF.
But BIFF Spokesman Abu Misry Mama denied it was their men who kidnapped the four. (Edgar Fuerzas)
