Cops clueless on separate ambush incidents in Central Mindanao

COTABATO CITY, Philippines – Investigators are still clueless on Thursday’s separate ambush incidents in Maguindanao province and in Marawi City that left six dead, two of them Islamic preachers.
Chief Inspector Lendsy Sinsuat of the municipal police in Datu Odin town in Maguindanao on Friday said probers are yet to identify the suspects in the fatal ambush of spouses Mantil and Noraiha Sangkad in Barangay Pinguiaman.
The victims were on their way to Cotabato City, riding a motorcycle together along with their seven-year-old child when gunmen on board a car trailing behind opened fire with handguns, killing them on the spot.
Residents in Barangay Pinguiaman southwest of Datu Odin said the suspects could have trailed the victims from as far as the town proper in Barangay Dalican and attacked at a secluded stretch of the Cotabato-Gen. Santos Highway, along a hill overlooking the Liguasan Delta.
Responding barangay officials immediately took the couple’s beleaguered child, who survived the shooting frenzy unscathed, away from the scene after the suspects sped away.
The Sangkads are both preachers in an Islamic school in Barangay Semba, also in Datu Odin.

“Our investigators are still trying to establish the identities of the culprits. We still have to determine if the incident was triggered by an old grudge, or related to their common profession as preachers,” Sinsuat said.
The fatal ambush of the Sangkads preceded a shooting incident in Barangay Sarimanok in Marawi City, now touted as Mindanao’s shabu capital, which left four people dead. -From
