MILF rebels tagged in attack on Kiamba police post

ICC General Santos City (6 November) -- Government authorities here have pressed charges against lawless Moro Islamic Liberation Front group (LMG) named responsible in the latest attack of a police post in Kiamba town, Sarangani.

Sarangani Governor Migs Dominguez said the police already filed Tuesday the complaint in court.

The governor confirmed that the MILF rebels led by Commander Bonde Binago under MILF's 107th Base Command were responsible in staging the attack on Sunday that injured two members of Civilian Volunteers Organization (CVO).

Wounded victims were Roy Ferrer and Remegio Malundag, both CVO members.

It was learned that the rebels attacked Kababayan Center No. 3 of the Kiamba Municipal Police Station using high-powered firearms.

Dominguez vowed that pursuit operations against Binago's group will continue with no let up.

The Sarangani Police Provincial Office headed by officer-in-charge Supt. Rolly Octavio assured that relentless operations will be conducted saying more police personnel have already been deployed in the area to bolster military force pursuing the LMG.

Octavio also asked earlier the Police Regional Office 12 Bomb Squad to retrieve the unexploded B40 rocket that was used by LMG to fire at the police post.

Dominguez said the area needs more government troops to prevent recalcitrant members of MILF from harassing the civilians again.

Meanwhile Task Force Makima, which stands for the towns of Maasim, Kiamba, and Maitum has been tasked to "extend full medical assistance to the injured CVO members."

Vice Governor Steve Solon, task force director made sure that the victims, "now in stable condition" be afforded medical attention in a private hospital. (PIA SarGen) [top]
