CAMP SIONGCO, Maguindanao – Several firearms were recovered at General Salipada K. Pendatun (GSKP), Maguindanao early this morning (February 6) after serving warrant of arrest against an individual with outstanding warrant of arrest.

The operating troops of 40th Infantry Battalion were serving arrest warrant against a certain Sukarno Buka a.k.a. Boba who is facing a charge for attempted murder. The suspect is also a Commander of the Bangsomoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) terror group.

At around 6:00 a.m., arresting troops were about to approach the residence of alias Boba at Sitio Mamanen, Brgy. Midconding of GSKP, when a group of men fired at the government troops.

An exchange of fires ensued which lasted for about 5 minutes. Boba and the rest of the suspects managed to escape and flee to an unknown direction.

Recovered at his residence were one KG9 rifle, one M79 grenade launcher, one homemade shotgun, one caliber .40 pistol, one Butt Stock of M14 rifle, one riflescope, one gas cylinder of M60 machine gun, assorted magazines and several rounds of ammunition. 

The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Melanio M. Guerrero of Regional Trial Court Branch 20 in Tacurong City last May 4, 2017.

The Commander of 6th Infantry Division and Joint Task Force Central, Maj. Gen. Diosdado C. Carreon, said that the JTFC troops will pursue those bandits involved in criminalities. He also commended the troops of 40th IB for their bravery in serving the warrant of arrest even if it means risking their lives in line of duty.
