Another operation based on a separate search warrant led to the arrest of Dongon's father, Romeo Dungon, and another sister, Norein Santos Dungon.

Marwan was the subject of an ant-terrorism operation that killed 44 Special Action Force (SAF) policemen in Mamasapano, Maguindanao on January 25, 2015.
