Men of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) of the Zamboanga Sibugay Public Safety Company led by Supt. William Gadayan arrested a suspected kidnapper and member of a notorious kidnap-for-ransom group in Barangay Tenan, Ipil yesterday morning.

Gadayan identified the arrested suspect as Ayub Enriquez , a follower of the Barahama Ali group. He was shot and wounded in the left arm after he resisted arrest by Gadayan’s team.

Recovered from Enriquez’s possession were a fragmentation grenade, a 45 caliber pistol and rounds of ammunition.

Gadayan said Enriquez had a standing warrant of arrest for murder with case number I-5002 issued by Judge Josefino Basel of the Regional Trial Court Branch 24 based Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Further report said that Enriquez was involved in the kidnappings of Piejie Li, Warren Rodwell, Reynaldo Drapeza, Joel Endino, Jr., all happened in Sibugay, and Maricris Cuartocruz who was kidnapped in Manicahan, this city.

Enriquez will be taken to the court after the treatment of gunshot wound. — Dan Toribio
