Two more followers of the late Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon were arrested during law enforcement operations near city hall  last Thursday.

A Police report identified the suspects as Sammer Lanjang aka Abu Sammer/ Ziad and aka Askabal.

The two suspects are followers of Hapilon and ASG leader Asirin Taulani, Basilan-based Abu Sayyaf leaders.

The two suspects are facing charges of kidnapping and serious illegal detention in connection to the Golden Harvest Plantation incident in Lantawan, Basilan in June 2001.

The two were arrested based on the identification of two witnesses under the government’s Witness Protection program.  (Dan Toribio)
