Police tag 4 MILF members as responsible for grenade attack in North Cotabato?

PDFPrintE-mail

KIDAPAWAN CITY – Police have identified two of the four suspects in the grenade attack last Saturday in Aleosan town in North Cotabato that killed three and injured 33 others.

Sr. Supt. Cornelio Salinas, provincial director of the North Cotabato police, said the suspects were all members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

A certain Quilos Manalinding, councilor of Barangay Lawili in Aleosan town and also one of the top leaders of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) in North Cotabato, was their main target, according to Salinas.

Manalinding was among those hurt during the grenade blast, reports said.
“Although the suspects were members of the MILF and their target was an MNLF commander, I think the attack was more of a personal grudge,” said Salinas.

Citing data, Salinas said the conflict started when the wife of the one of the MILF commanders in nearby Midsayap, also in North Cotabato, was killed.
The killing was blamed on Manalinding and his men.

“When the suspects confirmed the presence of Manalinding in the cockpit last Saturday, they staged the attack,” said Salinas.
The police, however, refused to divulge names of the suspects pending the filing of the charges against them.

Salinas said they were readying the multiple murder and multiple frustrated murder complaints against the suspects.
At least four men were suspected to be involved in hurling a fragmentation grenade at the center of the cockpit arena at about 11:25 a.m. on Saturday as hundreds of spectators were watching a cockfight.

Killed in the grenade attack were Fermin Caloquin, Vicente Sabando, and Jose Mario dela Pena, all residents of Aleosan town.

Wounded during the grenade blast were Manalinding, 57; Elizardo Pastolero, 40; Felix Palag, 57; Benito Cabangisan, 59; Hermie Canaway, 21; Remie Sabando, 22; Domingo Cabaluna, 46; Silvestre Bernadio, 41; Jobert dela Pena, 44; Primo Claro, 50; Tito Cagbay, 31; Modesto Barte, 36; Romeo Camancho, 38; Joey Camino, 27; Ronald Calaor, 30; Rodel Salares, 22; Antonio Aquita, 44; Loperto dela Pena, 19; William Estrellado, 53; Renanto Magsipoc; Vicente Saga, 44; Joseph Antonio, 24; Rex Cabalfin, 31; Mamero Cansancio, 36; George Cansancio, 33; Victor Caballero, 26; Glen Tahad, 31; Jonas Salupiza, 36; Jimmy Osorio, 36; Bernardo Caingcoy, 38; Inicito Quinones, 63; Hononcio Banisio, 50; and Lazaro Pastolero, 38.
