A  habal habal driver, who regularly ferries clients on board his motorcycle, was arrested by police after he was uncovered to be a member of the Abu Sayyaf group during an operation in Sitio Talungon, Barangay San Roque last Sunday.

The suspect was identified as Baser J. Ahmad alias Abu Pandak Duma, a resident of Lower Cabatangan, married, 45 years old.

Ahmad is facing kidnapping and serious illegal detention charges based on a warrant of arrest  issued by Judge Domingo Kinazo of the 9th Judicial Region, Branch 1, Isabela City.

Authorities confiscated the suspect’s motorcycle used as a “habal-habal.”The suspect was detained prior to the turnover to the court amid denials that he is a member of the Abu Sayyaf.  (Dan Toribio)
