Islamic City of Marawi (15 September) -- After two weeks in captivity, Abdulcader Magarang was finally reunited with his family today.
He was freed by his abductors early this morning at barangay Bubong-a-Madaya this city.
According to Police Superintendent Cosanie M. Derogongan, the release of the kidnap victim was made possible through negotiations conducted by the Provincial Council of Elders with the kidnappers.
A well-known businessman in the city, Magarang, was kidnapped by five unidentified armed men last August 31 along Ampuan Street in barangay Lilod Madaya while he was on his way to the public market.
Derogongan said they are currently coordinating with the Magarang family for the filing of appropriate charges in court. (PIA Marawi) [top]
