Abdurajak was later turned over to the Philippine Coast Guard for disposition.

Meanwhile, Sinubong Barangay Chairman Rolando Soler affirmed that Abdurajak was suffering from mental illness.

Soler also confirmed that Abdurajak was born in Malaysia and presently residing in his barangay.

The report added that Abdurajak allegedly stole the banca from its owner and went sailing until found in the high seas. – DanToribio
