Elite police commandos killed two Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) members in a recent encounter in a remote village in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi Sunday morning. The reports said the encounter between elements of the 51st Special Action Company (SAC) of the PNP Special Action Force (SAF) occurred on Sanga-Sanga Road, Bongao, Tawi-Tawi. The two ASG members killed in the encounter were identified as Redz Matarol from Talipao and a certain “Doke”. A third member a certain “Umben” was able to escape from the firefight in which PO2 Ronie I got was wounded. The two slain ASG bandits and “Umben” were reportedly followers of ASG leader, Yasser Igasan, whose group was tagged in the abduction of a Jordanian journalist freed last month following more than a year in captivity. Police claimed to have uncovered a plan of the ASG to kidnap more wealthy businessmen in Mindanao.
