Report: Sulu bombing suspect, 3 others bolt CIDG jail

A suspect linked to a bombing incident in Sulu province and an assassination attempt on Sulu Gov. Abdusakur Tan bolted a police detention cell with three other inmates before dawn of Christmas Day.

A manhunt has been launched for the four, even as two of the guards on duty were placed under investigation, Radio dwIZ reported Saturday afternoon.

The report said one of the escaped inmates was Sulaiman Muin, who was linked to an assassination try on Tan in Patikul town in May 2009. (See: Police nab 2 suspects in slay try on Sulu governor)

Muin and the three other inmates escaped from the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) Region 9 detention cell in Zamboanga City.

The other inmates were initially identified as Khadaffy Askalani, who faces carjacking charges; Salipabo Pulalon, who faces charges of illegal possession of firearms; and one Nadzmir Amerul.

Initial investigation showed the inmates escaped by dismantling the ceiling of the comfort room as well as the wooden bars of their cell.

CIDG Region 9 chief Senior Superintendent Mario Rarisa Jr. ordered an investigation of the two guards on duty, initially identified as PO1 Renoman Hundangan and PO1 Algemar Sahiron.

A police manhunt was also launched for the four escaped inmates.—JV, GMANews.TV
