Tetuan Police have arrested two and rounded up six other suspected Sulu-based Abu Sayyaf members at a safehouse in Logoy Diutay, Talon Talon last Sunday.

Tetuan Police Station Commander Supt Nonito Asdai identified the two ASG members as Benhar Omar Yusop and Kisar Saling y Sabadin.

The identities of the six other suspects were withheld pending investigation.

Asdail said that Saling has healed wounds, believed to be from gunshots.

Police acted on information from the Talon Talon Barangay Council that some individuals have arrived in the barangay from the province of Sulu several weeks ago.

Police, in coordination with barangay officials, conducted surveillance which led to the arrest of the suspects. (Dan Toribio)
