Seven alleged members of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) were made to turn back by authorities after failing to present government identification cards at a military checkpoint in barangay Licomo last Tuesday.

Vitali Police Station Commander Chief Insp Salvador Galvez said that the seven MNLF men were aboard a passenger bus when they tried to enter Zamboanga city the other day.

The group identified themselves as members of the MNLF and told soldiers that they wanted to go to Zamboanga city for medical check-up.

Soldiers however held the group due to lack of proper coordination with the local government.

The MNLF members reportedly insisted on entering the city but soldiers remained adamant due to lack of the required coordination and identification cards.

After several minutes, the MNLF decided to turn back after it became apparent that soldiers will not allow them to enter due to the current policy of ‘No ID, No Entry.” (Dan Toribio)
